National Park Service Fair This Thursday, December 7th

Students should be in their final steps of completing their boards for this Thursday’s National Park Service Fair.  Many students have been working hard in class to complete their display boards, and some have  been working from home.  Parents, please check in with your kids to see if their project is near completion.  Also, students need to be working on how they plan to present their project on the day of the fair.  We will work on this in-class a bit tomorrow, but I strongly recommend they get their thoughts together for Thursday.

National Parks Fair Project: Updated rubric for project due on 12/7

Just a reminder about the upcoming fair on December 7th.  Materials needed for completing display boards should be brought into class on Tuesday, 11/28.  They will be assembling their display boards in class on 12/1, 12/4-5, and will present them to me in class on 12/6. Also, attached is an updated project rubric for students to use as a guide.  I hope everyone has a great week off.  Happy Thanksgiving!!
