Students will continue reading their novel for homework and write a summary and vocab card for each chunk.

SOCIAL STUDIES

Your City Visitor Guide will continue. You will use the Big 6 steps to research to work you way through this project. This week you will write paragraphs on migration and demographics- which is all about people. This may bring back memories and/ or connections to the Immigration topic many of you studied back in Grade 4 if you were at ISM then!) Again, we will practice this in class together using Manila as a case study, and then you will be off to research and draft your paragraphs on your own city.

The drafts for these paragraphs are due by the end of class on Fri 13th Feb.

Visitor Guide Rubric SS

Remember, your paragraph writing is  part of your English grade. Look at the rubric to see what you will be assessed on with your expository writing to remind yourselves.
