Monday March 5 to Friday March 9

Sorry everyone. My blog has been down for the week.

Just a recap for the week:

*students started their problem/solution research benchmark by choosing an island and learning about its problem
*students then partnered up when they do the display board
*students started researching in the library from Wednesday on their 1st solution. (in order to research a solution to their island problem, they need to research what Hawaii is currently doing).
*websites and possible solutions given to the students to help them out.

1st solutions were due at the end of class on Friday.
