Grammar

IXL exercise on choosing the right homophone to fit a given sentence.

6th Grade – R.2 7th Grade – S.2 8th Grade – U.2

Writing

The goal for this week in our big social studies research project is to have five solid sources, two of them qualifying as primary sources, identified, read, and documented. If in school, students would have had some more time dedicated to finding information online. So, please spend some time at home doing that. About 30 minutes split into two parts would probably be good.

Reading

There is an assigned article on Readworks.org about elements and compounds. Please read it and respond using the question set.

Science

Then, navigate to Periodic Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/periodicvideos choose an element, watch the video for the element. Write a short summary of the video that you can share with classmates on Wednesday.

Math

Each student has a tailored list of seven to ten videos and/or activities on khanacademy.org.
