Have you marked your calendar? Just a reminder that Wednesday, November 30, at 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM, Grades 5 and 6 will lead the first Advent worship services at Zion Church. We have begun preparations for leading worship including practicing drama parts, and learning songs.
A reminder also for musicians that auditions will be Tuesday, November 22 for preservice and offertory music. Selections must be sacred music related to the Advent or Christmas seasons of the church year. You will be able to use sheet music, but need to know your piece very well.
What's going on?
In Literature we read a Jack London story about the Alaskan Gold Rush. Students are working on a "Newspaper Article" set in the time to retell the story. We used Google Docs to share a template of a column format and students are learning how to upload and download documents. (If the columns don't come out quite right - that's OK.
In Social Studies we held the "Great Lakes Debate" looking at the conditions of this ecosystem from the 1960's until present day. Pollution, invasive species and habitat loss are all examples of Human-Environment Interaction.
We are taking facts learned now to analyze, "Have things improved?" Next week, students will be creating an online "glog" which is an interactive poster that mimics a website to present their findings.
