Happy Birthday Cookie Monster!

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

A - Social Studies 11 - Today with Mr. Jones you will be finishing up the movie "Cinderella Man". After the movie has finished you'll begin a class discussion on the personal impacts of the 1929 Stock Market crash and the economic Depression of the 1930's. You'll have some time to clarify your assignment on the movie and then have a bit of time to begin working on it.

B - Geography 12 - Today we're looking at glaciers and we'll make sense of how they erode the landscape and examine the landforms they create. We'll understand the differences amongst the various alpine and continental glaciers and we'll define: cirque, arete, pyramidical peak, hanging valley, truncated spur, esker, drumlin, kettle lake, and fjord; along with questions 3, 8, and 12 from page 587 in your Geosystems text.
