Day 8Let's take a break from the textbook and NEWSELA folks! Since all of you have done a fantastic job putting together intriguing Power Point projects over this past school year, l would very much like to see everyone create another one during this unique experience of remote learning. You have the option of creating a Power Point based upon any important historical event in history. It could be something from thousands of years ago such as the ancient Egyptians, Romans, the Middle Ages, African civilizations, or Native American cultures in North America, Central America, or South America. Or, you could pick a topic from contemporary history such as WWI, WWII, the Russian Revolution, the Iraq War, 9/11, or even a pandemic such as the Black Plague, the Spanish Flu, or coronavirus. Again, these are just some ideas.

You do not have to choose these topics. These are just examples. Think about some topics. You don't have to decide today or this week. I will upload a PP requirements worksheet to help you to organize your presentation. It will be the same requirements that we do in class such as pictures, video links, animations, etcetera. I require that the presentation be at least 12 slides. You may add more if you like. As soon as you get an idea for a topic, send it to me and we can come up with some ideas!

 

Day 9 - Continue Power Point Project.

 

Day 10 - Continue and complete PP project.

 

Week 3  (3/30/20 - 4/3/20)

 

Day 11 - Google Classroom.  Answer questions 1-7 on the Google docs worksheet, Mother Ganges. You will have access to the PP presentation to help you answer the questions, 1-5. You will also be required to watch a brief video about the river to help you answer question 6. Next, research a little on the Internet to answer question #7. The video is embedded in the PP.  

 

Day 12 –  Google Classroom.  Please answer questions, 1-10. I have provided the Ducksters webpage to help you answer the questions. Please watch the attached movie trailer, GANDHI, before or after you complete this assignment about this remarkable individual. Also, I highly recommend watching the movie at some point. Again, it is not a requirement but I believe that the class is mature enough to watch, understand, and to appreciate what Gandhi was able to accomplish! 

 

Day 13 -  Google Classroom.  Let's do something slightly different for today's lesson! Let's combine a science/geography lesson in regard to wildlife, and how a part of India (geography), is infamous for its deadly tiger attacks on people. The purpose of this documentary is to simply show how people and nature come into conflict with one another, and how people from different parts of our fascinating world, carry on and persevere, in the face of natural obstacles to survive. Please watch this documentary and write down 10 facts that you find interesting. Moreover, I'd like to take at least one fact from each student and share it with the rest of the class on Google classroom. I always believed that our class conducted insightful discussions related not only to a particular lesson for that day, but also events that were currently going on in our world. Why not keep it going?!

 

Day 14 -  Google Classroom.  I figured that we'll end the unit of South Asia on a lighter note! This is quite an unusual article that I found that you might enjoy. I read about this particular problem years ago and was curious if it still existed. Sure enough....it is still a problem. Answer the following 10 questions and check out the video link, too! The questions are in Google Docs, Monkey Mimics - India.

 

Day 15 -  TEXTBOOK ASSIGNMENT.  Please answer questions, 1-3, Map Skills, on page 108, PHYSICAL,
answer questions, 1-3, Map Skills, on page 109, POLITICAL,
