February Project 

Let's take a break...

Peter & the Starcatchers


We are going to do Tech Menu a little different this week. 

Part 1 Each Day:

Khan Academy


You are going to start each Tech Session by doing 15 minutes in your Grammar course on Khan Academy.  You'll work silently with headphones on for this portion of Tech Menu each day.  

Part 2 Each Day:

Alexander the Great...A Hero or Villain?

Once you've done your 15 minutes of grammar, you will move on to the Alexander the Great project.  The first portion is assigned on Google Classroom and has 4 tasks. 


The second portion is to make a poster about Alexander the Great -- if you think he was a hero, you get an "In Memory" poster to design.  If you decide he is a villain, you create a "Wanted" poster. 

If you finish all of part 2 (4 tasks on Google Classroom document and your poster), you may do the link below.
