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

B Block 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.

A Block Social Studies 11 - You have your unit final test on World War One today. If you studied and came prepared, I'm sure that you will do well. With the remaining time left in class (as the test will only take about forty minutes to complete) you'll be able to work on on the following:
  • What effect did Canada’s participation in the First World War have on Canadian society and its status as a nation?
  • Great Suffering work section A, B, and C
  • Great Expectations work section questions A, B, and C
  • Germany Re-Made: The Treaty of Versailles work section questions A and B
  • A Dictated Peace: The Treaty of Versailles work section questions A, B and C

D Block Social Studies 10 - Today you have your Early 19th Century History (Rebellions-Confederation) unit final test, if you studied and came prepared I am certain you will find the test a breeze. The test should really only take you no more than forty-five minutes to an hour to finish but you have as much time in class as you need. Good luck! When you are finished you may work on your confederation editorial cartoon.
