6th Grade SS - Finding the Moral of a Fable (5/5 & 5/6)

Watch the video instructions for Tuesday and Wednesday's activity where you will choose 1 fable to read each day in order to try to determine the moral (lesson) of the story. This will help you prepare for when you write your own fable, starting on Thursday.

7th Grade SS - Week of 5/4

Thank you again to those that are keeping up with your work. I know this is a huge change so if you're having a hard time- try your best and reach out for assistance. 
Here are the plans for this week:
Monday 5/4 -  Watch my video for instructions on how to create/upload a video presentation. Today, choose 1 part of the project that you completed (it could be something you created, your essay, or whatever you chose to do for part 3.) You will record yourself sharing your work (it does not have to be long) and you will share it by visiting the website 
Your ID is your first name and HR #.  For example, If there was a Peter in HR 7, his ID would be PeterHR7.
*After you do this - do the nearpod code FDSYV - You will submit 3-5 questions about social studies or ANYTHING you are interested in. I will create a video answering as many of your questions as possible and you will watch the video on Friday.
Tuesday 5/5 - Record 1 more part of your project and share it to the flipgrid website posted about, using the same ID
Wednesday 5/6 - Watch 3-5 video presentations and complete the Nearpod activity using the code: ZIFLK
Thursday 5/7 - Watch 3-5 video presentations and complete the Nearpod activity using the code: ADTJH
Friday 5/8 - Watch the Find Out Friday video that I will post Thursday night. Then, complete the Nearpod activity using the code: JXMQG

6th Grade SS - Week of 5/4

I loved your Ancient Greek God presentations! I miss seeing you all but I enjoyed the amazing work you showed in your presentations!
Here are the plans for this week
Monday 5/4 - Complete the Ancient Greek Gods matching activity on Nearpod (HR 10-12 code: KMYNU)      (HR 13 - code: KNDUA)
Tuesday 5/5 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!  We are going back to learn about Ancient Greek literature, specifically Fables.  In today's Nearpod, you will see 2 different fables. You must choose just 1 fable to read and determine the moral (lesson) from the story. Use the Code: BSJLD
Wednesday 5/6 -  In today's Nearpod, you will again see 2 different fables. You must choose just 1 fable to read and determine the moral (lesson) from the story. Use the Code: EJNYW
Thursday 5/7 - Now that we are familiar with fables, you will try your best to create your own. Look at the file I posted and the video lesson to start writing your own fable.  If you're having a hard time, I shared an outline with fable suggestions, or you can create a comic instead of writing. But remember, fables do not have to be long to teach a lesson.  Today, outline your story.
Friday 5/8 - Start writing a rough draft of your fable. Send me whatever you complete to [email protected]
