The Sophomores begin their Religion Project next week. They will be taking the 5 major religions and presenting about them later on. What I hope they gain from this is that while all religions are different they do have some common elements. They should learn to appreciate those differences and embrace them in other people.
The 7th grade geography class will be doing a research poster on a country. They are going to apply all that they have learned from the 5 themes of Geography and use it to tell me about various aspects of the country (population, import/export...etc.).
The rest of the kids will be working on various tasks, but those are the three big ones!
