Every Monday you will be given guidelines on your project for the week. I will explain exactly what is expected, hand out worksheets and make sure we all fully understand. You will gather information as part Monday’s homework, Tuesday’s homework, Wednesday’s homework and Thursday’s homework and compile this in your scrap book night by night. Then on Friday everyone will make a 2 minute presentation on their findings to the class. I will only collect your scrapbook every Friday to correct.

Finding Information:
Where you find your information is completely your own choice.
The class library is full of great books,
You may have relevant books at home,
Family always know lots of interesting facts you could include
And if you have internet access I will post links to great websites in the homework help section of the blog


Don't forget you could earn up to 12 stickers for your project!!
