From Garden to Plate
The ECO team from Warren Wilson College is bringing lessons to out class each week for the next six weeks. The lesson we had on November 6th was learning about the water basin. Students used different types of maps to locate where they live, the French Broad River, and the route the French Broad flows.
These lessons are hands on and the students are loving them.
I have not sent home the response log at this time because the copier is having problems . I will only put a question for the number of weeks left in 2nd nine weeks. It is the student's responsibility to keep up with the assignment. I could ask at any time to see the response log. Students are to choose one question per week to write a response from the book he/she read that week. If a book has over 300 pages two questions can be answered. It will count for two books.
