Students checked and turned in the Weekly Warm-Up Wizard #2 today and grades are in Synergy.  These are given on Monday and due back on Friday-despite absences during the week (and field trips).  

Block 1:

Today, students participated in a round robin to experience various parts of the Latin American culture.  This is the last part of the Geography portion of our tour of Latin America.

Over the break, please finish any research you would like to add.  We will not be going back to the Media Center but will be creating your presentations.  I would like each of you to think about how you would like to share the information you have.  Your group will then begin coordinating that.  We will discuss the particular requirements for the presentation when we return from break!
