Article of the Week - Twister!
Since this was our first article we used class time to read, reread, highlight important information and annotate the article. Most of you also completed page 81 in class (except 7C) so all that needs to be completed is the t-chart for Tornadoes - Causes and Effects, and the questions about where tornadoes occur and how people protect themselves. Remember - I suggested that you complete this on looseleaf paper since the space provided on pg 82 would be difficult to work with.
7B Due today (Monday)
7A Due Tuesday (January 23)
7C Due Thursday (January 25)
As we move forward you will continue to be given time in class to begin your work and ask questions, plus a week to complete the reading of the article, annotating, and completing assigned work.
The next article will be given out starting on Monday, January 29th. (I am not assigning one this week so that you have time to put the finishing touches on your STEAM projects and get a start on your Heritage Fair project (althought class time is being given for this as well))
