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

B - Geography 12 - Today....Oh today we start on Volcanoes....Sweet! It's a Bill Nye the Science Guy video (brought to you by the Law Offices of Magma, Lava, Tefra, and Pumice making mountains out of vent holes for over four billion years) and then we'll try to understand the five different types of volcanoes, with examples, and see if we can figure out where these beasts are on the planet. This all sets us up for our Mt. Rainier project later on this week. We'll look at the Mount Saint Helens eruption of 1980 (May 18th at 8:32 am) and watch some sweet vids on Kilauea. Warning: Geek Alert! (By the way at the 1:55 minute mark of the video you'll see Bill @ Mount Saint Helens...not too far off from where the picture of he and I was I said Geek Alert!) If you missed it here's the YouTube link to the video we're watching in class

I can't wait for Lava Days at Magmavox!

A - Social Studies 11 - Today is your government of Canada unit final test and if you prepared for it I am certain you will do well. You have the whole block to complete this test

D- Law 12 - Today you have two things to hand in to me: your judicial decision in the Law & Order case from Friday and your newspaper review of the Jim Keegstra case. Today we'll start into our criminal law unit by identifying, with a partner, one crime in the Criminal Code. After that we're going to look at the types of criminal offenses (summary conviction, indictable, hybrid) and the elements of a crime (with special attention focused on the Mens Rea - intent, knowledge, and recklessness). You'll need to work on questions 1-3 on page 67 and 3-7 on page 74 in the law textbook. Here are some websites to help:
