Until we get Edmodo up and running for your classes, I will be updating this blog regularly. You will take home a letter tomorrow about Edmodo and all of the advantages it has over a traditional blog.
We did a variety of activities today including Canned Soup Economics Intros, mini-time capsules, painting the BIG PICTURE, and finally a sticky note "doing" shirt.
Don't worry about having your supplies until next week (after the sales tax holiday this weekend). We will go over what you need in class tomorrow.
Homework: By Friday complete your "Social Studies Interest Inventory" (both sides) & your "All About You" sheet. A parent signature is required on the "All About You' sheet.
If possible, please submit this via Edmodo. If that isn't possible, you may turn in a written copy. Thanks!

2) What was the most intriguing part of the article to you? Why?
I will be putting some review resources & games here for your "reviewing enjoyment" in your spare time over Spring Break '13! If the links don't work, just paste them into your browser. I'm not sure why that is happening.
