One Day More….

Hi friends….was out today to be a student!  It was a great in-service-can’t wait to share what I learned with you!

I’m back!

Tomorrow you get to show what you know!  Today was “Game Day” -various review activities were done!  Use them well!

Extra Credit?  Of course!  One of the opportunities was to watch the Brain Pop video on British Empire and complete the quiz.  All must be correct (okay I will give you one missed).  This is good for one extra point!  Want another?  Here is a tricky one..how many electoral votes will the candidate need to win the office of President?  Research. Print out this blog.  Write the number. Have parent sign.  Turn in with test.
