Journal Entry #5 "Our Cosmic Address": No digital copy of "Cosmos" Episode #1 "Standing Up in the Milky Way" from which we watched from 3:40-15:25...if you have Netflix you are in luck, if not, come in at lunch or after school and I'll replay it.
Tue. 11/17 - Journal Expectations and Journal Entries #3 "Threshold Card #4" and #4 "How the Earth and Solar System Formed" (see "Journal Assignments" for this unit on GoogleDrive in Unit 4 Folder)
GoogleDrive being weird so not able to get Daily Slides in Blog...you can see what we did on GoogleDrive yourselves (search "Journal Assignments" and "Daily Slides" to see what we did)...will fix when I get home if I have time (assuming GDrive is behaving/loading).
Mon. 11/16 - Recap last, preview this, Unit #4/ Threshold #4 "Earth and the Solar System" journal set-up (entry #1 "Title Page"), LT Pre-assessment (entry #2 "Unit 4 Learning Target Pre-Assessment), and "3-Close Reads: Earth and Solar System" activity.

Remember that Wednesday is not just a day off...spend some time proving you value the sacrifices and service of our Veteran's. Maybe I'll see a few of you at Tahoma National Cemetery. You also have plenty of work to be doing...as does Bags (in fact typing this at 5:30 in the morning on Wednesday before my kids get up, then grading...so I feel your pain).
How the Universe Works "Extreme Stars": Make sure you got as far as your class did (Bags will try to work in some class time to finish, if not he'll give you the weekend to finish whatever we don't get done in class)...
