    Tonight, students should prepare for day 2 of the "Mostly Memory Map" activity which we started in class on Tuesday. Students will have only 5 minutes to look at their continental explorer maps tomorrow so memorizing some cities and countries would be a good idea.

    All students must complete their Continental Explorer maps for tomorrow's class.

    This weekend, students are welcome to work on their continental explorer maps to get a little bit ahead of the game. We will have about 25 minutes to work on them in class on Monday and if not finished then will be due at the start of class on Tuesday.

    Also, students should be helping their parents log in to PowerSchool using their login sheets this weekend.

      When I clicked the link it was saying that I need permission, and that it can only be viewed by users in the owners organization.

      If anyone is still struggling with the survey, please realize that you must log in to Google to take the survey. You must log in to your Google Drive/Gmail account to be able to access this survey. This will be true of a lot of things I post this year so please take a little extra time to make sure you can do this, this weekend.

    Hello Silver Sharks and welcome to your Social Studies Edmodo page! As you know, we have a homework assignment that is due over the long weekend. You are to interview a parent/guardian about their favorite part of history and write about it.

    Forgot your sheet? Use the link below to write down the questions on white lined paper or print out a new one.

    See you on Tuesday!
