Reading & Writing Project #3 for 2015-16

Amelia Earhart

Today, we had the great opportunity to have the history team introduce our next “Reading and Writing Project”.  As always, they have found text that is not only grade level and complex but interesting and something the students would want to read–  since everyone loves a good mystery!

The links below note the packets that were created by the history team and given to each student/teacher today to help guide the learning over the next three days.
