May 13 Newsletter Notes


This week we took all of our research notes and placed them into an outline. The students are excited to use their outlines to write their Michigan Research Papers. Students will be revising their papers next week and all presentations will begin on May 31. Students are required to make a PowerPoint presentation, a poster board with the highlights of their research, or a brochure. They will present the information to the class.

Our new unit will cover lines, angles, symmetry, polygons, and much more! We begin our new unit on Monday.
