Last Two Weeks

Students are working on a research presentation.  The main points I am working on are keeping the kids from just copying and pasting from the internet.  The students have been taught how to make a bibliography page and are expected to cite 3 webpages and 6 pictures.  The bibliography should be the last slide(s) of the presentation.  The students were are given the attached direction sheet, and they are to write their facts down on note cards. 
10 note cards are due on Wednesday
10 MORE note cards are due on Friday
 
Students will then give an oral presentation of their research.  Please have your child practice in front of a mirror or in front of you.  The presentations will begin next Monday.
