Insulation Inspiration ice cube keeper, writing paragraph about what you tried and learned, and diagram labeling key parts of your ice cube keeper are due March 17.
Ice cubes will be provided on March 17 as we use the entire day to test our ice cube keepers. (See the pink assignment sheet for more directions.) Work hard and do several test experiments to figure out which materials make the best insulators for ice cubes.

Biography Speech & Masks - due April 15
While reading your biography, you may want to take notes on paper or sticky notes so your final report is easier to write once you finish the book. Take notes on the underlined categories below.
Please be sure to prepare a speech with speech cards or in some type of written/typed form for this project. The speech should include the following information:
• your name
• book title
• author’s name
• description of person’s early life- birth date, family members, education, 2-3 important events
• description of the person’s public life- 3 major events in this person’s public life, what the person did/ accomplished, why he/she is famous
• opinion about the person & how the world is different because of him/her
• recommendation for the book and 3 reasons explaining it.
Also, be sure the mask is created by the student. You are welcome to buy mask craft materials at a hobby store, however, a mask made with a paper plate, yarn, felt, etc. can be just as creative!
