Good afternoon. Today you worked on your rough draft of your NOW Report. If you need to do more research at home, please do so. You had two days to research here at school in the computer lab.

Interview two adults (for a total of four interview paragraphs). One interview for each person should be about where the person was, how they found out, what they did, etc. on 9/11/2001. Write or type a good paragraph (minimum) about what the person tells you.
The other two interviews should be about another "I remember exactly where I was & how I found out, etc." event in recent history (the person's lifetime).
To clarify again: Two people: Two events each person (one event being 9/11 for each person).
Hi! I'm going to post extra credit instructions before the night is over! I'm going to upload some pictures from the show, etc. I'll be back!
Oh, & this is nr first iPad blog post using the app!! ;-)

Inukshuk, Canadian jade, rocks in Canadian Shield
Mayan glyphs carved into stone, Aztec grinding of corn on stone
Ayers Rock (Uluru)
Research the significance of two of these & write/type a good paragraph for each.
Find out what scientific type of rock it is (for the ones you choose). Use the two ISN pages we designated Friday - the one you wrote the rocks on & the next page.
The above is extra credit, but the next item is not! You are expected to have completed the five CC & sentences for the rivers by tomorrow. If you did the HW the other night & wrote anything down Thursday in class,you should be done or almost done.
