We did an activity called "Day in the Life of the Working Poor." Together with a partner you created a plan on how to live off of just $20.50 for one day according to a given scenario. Everyone had awesome discussions and worked well together to determine how and where they would use that money.

Today we worked on our writing skills. We learned a new strategy for writing a paragraph response called ACE. A is for Answer the question, C is for Cite Evidence, and E is for Explain how your evidence connects to your answer. Please find someone in class to take notes from. We then practiced writing a paragraph as a class before writing one on your own.
Finish paragraph and read chapter 6.
