Happy Friday!

Students are working on two projects now....one for Health (Grade 5 & Grade 6) and one in Social Studies (Grade 5 only)

Health Project - Students are creating a brochure about the harmful effects of alcohol (grade 5 or 6) or tobacco, marijuana or another drug (grade 6).  The brochure has three parts:

1) Harmful effects of the substance (This is the largest section)
2) Strategies for avoiding exposure to unwanted substances, situations and peer pressure
3) A section on where to seek more information and help (Trusted adults, police, kids help phone, websites etc.)

1) Map of early North American migration,(done)
2) A short explanation of Scientific Origin Theories,
3) From the Editor page
4) Letter to the Editor
5) Creation Stories
6) Map of First Nations Language Groups
