This week in humanities class, students took a virtual field trip to the David Ruggles Center in Florence, MA to learn more about him and Sojourner Truth. Students also looked at a slideshow about the new, optional baking and gardening activities plan. Next week we’ll be learning about Abraham Lincoln. For this lesson, students will be able to chose between two assignments: one that is more screen based and has an interesting prospective taking worksheet, and one that is more reading based and has a hands-on timeline activity. In science, many students finished their evaporation experiments and learned some plant vocabulary to prepare them for the optional gardening activities.

1) Fundraiser: Airlie has kindly donated her Facebook Fundraiser to us. Please like and share it on Facebook to help it gain traction and attention (and hopefully donations). Thanks!
2) Social Justice: Our friends, the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe, are in trouble! To learn more, and help them save their homeland, please click here. It would mean a lot to us and them if you could sign the petition and spread the word. One of our students is trying to mobilize the rest of the kids to write letters to their representatives about it, and we’ll post an (optional) lesson with more information this coming week.
3) Enrichment: If you’re looking for project ideas, Crayola emailed us 52 Ideas for National Crayon Day. Have fun!
4) Student Projects: One of our students has an article this week’s Montague Reporter, a newspaper compiled all by youths under the age of 18!
