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

B Block Law 12 - Today, we'll talk about annulments, divorce, property division and support obligations. We'll look at: the equal division rule and the matrimonial home; spousal support and self sufficiency; and the types of child guardianship, access, and child support. On Friday we'll begin watching "The War of the Roses" in class and tomorrow we're back in the library for continued work on our major project.

A & C Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today is our next day to work on your children's book about the building of the CPR. Your project is due this Monday...really it is. That means that the project is due after this weekend. That would be in five days right? Don't forget, here are some websites that can help you:
Sir Sandford Fleming The Knight of Time
Railway Witnesses, Memory of a Nation
Revelstoke Railway Museum Photo Archive
The Canadian Encyclopedia - Building the Railway
The Kids site of Canadian Settlement - Chinese & the Railway

D Block Law 9/10 - Today we are back in the library for our penultimate (second to last) day to continue your work on the Clue Us In crime scene investigation project. Please remember that the library has books on forensic investigation and I have books on crime scene investigation as well. Use these resources to aid you in the development of your project. Remember you need to create a crime...replicate the crime scene...investigate the crime as if you were an R.C.M.P. officer...and prepare a dossier file to hand over to Crown Counsel so that they may prosecute the case. Good Luck.
