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

B Block Geography 12 -

C - Geography 12 - Today is our LAST DAY in the library for our severe weather power point project. Remember that Discovery Channel has a great series called Raging Planet with some cool video footage that you could embed in your power point presentation here: Discovery Channel Raging Planet Your project will need to be submitted into the assignments directory at school NO LATER than Thursday, December 15th. This will give me enough time to have them marked before the Christmas Break. If you have completed the project or have some time during this block then I'd like you to take half an hour to play the game stop disasters. The scenario I would like you to work on is the Caribbean Island Hurricane. There is a population of 180 people in your town and you will need to develop some housing, a hospital, a school, and secure the boats in the harbour. You have a budget of $50,000 to work with and don't forget to develop some defenses to protect people, buildings, and livelihoods. When you click on an object square you will likely get three choices: info, develop, & defences. Read through your options and try to uncover all 15 key facts (which will give you extra points). When you finish keep a track of your highest score (you might get through two or three games) and respond to this post with things you learned and what your scores were. Have fun playing and learn something.

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we will spend the entire class in the library working on our crime scene reconstruction project. Don't forget that both the library and I have many books that you can use for your project. Please note that you have a quiz on crime scene searches on Wednesday and I would spend a bit of time reviewing pages 9-12 in the class booklet.

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll begin with the last section of Schindler's list that we didn't get to on Friday. We'll then talk about the end of the war in Europe and switch our focus to the Pacific. We'll look at the Manhattan Project and the use of nuclear weapons in Japan (Hiroshima and Nagasaki). This takes us to V-J Day and the end of World War Two. You'll have a unit final quiz on Wednesday in class and we'll review our chapter tomorrow.
