Another Snow Day

Posted in Uncategorized on December 15, 2016 by mrkufs

Well you’ve got another snow day. It’s bittersweet for me. I get time with my babies and look forward to our finding out the new baby gender at an appointment later. BUT I stress about keeping APUSH on track. So please do the following:

1) Speeches will be finished tomorrow and ALL journals completed.

2) Permission slips also for Tuesday’s trip.

3) Watch the 30:00 to end of the Civil War Ken Burns Volume 1 and take notes. https://youtu.be/MLzKzOnJ76Q

4) Mod 5 and 8 complete the sheet from reading the first six pages of Chapter 14. Mod 1, write down Fort Sumter detail, border states explanation, Lincoln’s acts that went against the Constitution, and wartime advantages and disadvantages for the North and for the South.

This should keep everyone busy. See you tomorrow. Message me with any questions.
