Charles Darwin

You have been assigned one of these parts of Charles Darwin’s life:

Family

Challenges

Accomplishments

Search the Internet and go to sites found here: The Best Online Resources To Learn About Charles Darwin.

You can also check out a Brainpop movie on his life.

Prepare a ninety-second to two-minute presentation on your assignment.  Put information into your own words.  Draw an image, and write key words on a poster that will help classmates learn from you.  Use index cards and practice your presentation.

Please take notes on the other presentations because you will be writing a historical biography about Darwin’s life afterwards.

New Orleans

Go this site and learn about New Orleans.

Be sure to scroll near the bottom and watch videos about tourist attractions in New Orleans AND at least one video about Hurricane Katrina.

We will spend 30 minutes learning about New Orleans.

Then, we will return to the room and students will write a response to this question:

What was the most interesting thing you learn about New Orleans?

Use the ABC model to answer this question:

ANSWER the question

BACK IT UP with evidence you learned online

Make a CONNECTION or COMMENT (“This is interesting to me because….”)

Current Events In The US – ARW

Groups will watch their assigned video and prepare a three minute class presentation on what they learn.

The presentation will include using a poster and have these parts (your spoken presentation can include more information):

* Three most important pieces of information

* A picture that you think helps explain important information

* What you think about the situation and why?

* A question you will ask the audience

Your poster should only have a few words for each part – it’s designed to help your spoken presentation, not to be the entire presentation!
