Thankful for you my lil’ turkies!

We completed our study of the Heroes of the Holocaust today and began creating a commemorative stamp to honor those who resisted injustice!  See Parent Vu if you were absent to download the resource. If you did not finish in class, this is homework.  Should not take very long to “polish” as we worked in class.

Warm-Up #8 was turned in as well.

I hope you have a very safe Thanksgiving and take time to reflect on the many things for which to be grateful!

Happy Friday Friends!

Test on Tuesday, November 14th!  Unit 2 Part 1!  Study a topic at a time….DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE NIGHT BEFORE!  Remember a revised PEEL paragraph can be used for the extended response portion of the test!

All blocks saw the result of the mock election we did in class yesterday….interesting!  Perhaps we have a better understanding of how Hitler gained the support of the German people!

Homework?  Did I mention we have a test on Tuesday?  Progress reports are next week…anything you need to take care of?
