Today's schedule is C-D-Lunch-B-A

D- Law 12 - Today we will briefly review yesterday's class on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Today we'll identify the ways that your rights can be limited (sections 1, 32, and 33) and continue our look at the fundamental freedoms we have. You'll then work on some questions on the Ford v. Attorney General of Quebec (1988) case (q. 1-4) and the B. (R.) v. Children's Aid Society of Metropolitan Toronto (1995) case (q. 1-5). This work will be due tomorrow so if you do not finish it in class you'll need to finish it for homework tonight.

B- Geography 12 - Today we'll transfer some notes into our week 3 package on the rock cycle and then we'll focus on igneous rocks and plutonic features. We'll have a diagram to complete and then there will be three questions to work on (12, 13, & 14 from page 366 in your Geosystems textbook). If time permits we will look at some sweet footage of Kilauea and try to understand the type of lava (rhyolite? andesite? peridotite? basalt?)
You can check out current conditions and watch videos (including some cool footage of the Pu'u 'O'o vent) at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory here

A - Social Studies 11- Today we'll look at the Executive Branch of the Federal government in Canada specifically the office of the Prime Minister. Yesterday began a discussion on leadership which we'll continue through today's class and get our ideas on the board. It will be your job to create a job wanted poster / advertisement for the office of Canadian Prime Minister. Included in this will be an explanation of roles and responsibilities (including powers), qualities and characteristics, and experience. For help look at:
Prime Minister of Canada
Canada Online Role of Prime Minister
All Experts Prime Minister of Canada
