We have all made many deep connections to Ivan and the other characters. With these connections, we have also felt many deep emotions. Think back to all of your writing activities, your notes, and your memories and reflect on how powerful these two books have been. Use your ideas for the 'WRITE A RESPONSE'.
1.) MATH 6 - Do your corrections and return your quizzes signed.
MATH 7 - Do your corrections and return your quizzes signed.
2.) SCIENCE - All research paragraphs, titles, subtitles, headings, pictures, etc, must be completed by Tuesday. DO NOT PASTE ANYTHING ON YOUR POSTER PAPER YET. You will be assessing your peers and giving them feedback on Tuesday so it is very important that you have all of your work completed so your peers can give you suggestions on how you can improve your work. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me or post a comment here.
3.) POST A RESPONSE (3 parts) - Visit the Atlanta Zoo website and read the article they have posted on 'CELEBRATING IVAN'. Be sure to also watch the YouTube link that is posted on the Atlanta Zoo website. Ivan was an amazing gorilla who had a huge presence.
Unfortunately, Ivan passed away on August 20th, 2012. It was a very emotional event for many people. I know that many of you made some incredible connections to Ivan and the rest of the characters during the 'Global Read Aloud' and I am sure you will all miss him.
a.) Write about how this makes you feel and be sure to explain why. You should clearly describe how this event makes you feel by using descriptive words (adjectives).
b.) You must include at least 2 connections you made to Ivan or any event that he experienced in the novel.
b.) BONUS: Do some investigative research and see if you can find an article on his passing.
4.) FIELD TRIPS - Ask your parents if they can drive to the rink on Thursday. If you haven't handed in your forms yet, be sure to bring them in on Monday. Also, if you are planning on going on the ski trip, bring in your forms and give them to Mrs. Van as soon as possible.
5.) QUESTION OF THE DAY- will be linked from the sidebar (to be updated)
