As Mr. Wannamaker continues to fulfill his civic responsibility by participating in Jury Duty, you complete any of the work from last Thursday that you haven't finished:

1) Click this link: Before We Ruled the Earth to watch a video about the Old Stone Age. Remember to wear your headphones or earbuds while watching it. While watching it, you should answer the questions on the handout entitled "Before We Ruled the Earth." It's on the Red Bookshelf. 

2) Complete the Historical Atlas Activity "Agriculture and Early Settlements." The worksheet is on the Red Bookshelf, and so is the Atlas to help you. 

3) Complete the Historical Atlas Activity "Reviewing Basic Map Skills." The worksheet is on the Red Bookshelf, and so is the Atlas to help you. 

4) Go to Newsela, log in to your account, and go to your binder. The following articles are in your Binder. For the remainder of the period, read these articles. For each of the articles that you read, you should complete the quiz and writing prompt (you can find the quiz and writing prompt by clicking on the Activities button at the top of the article.).
