    Here's a selection of online activities that you can choose to investigate.
    In each case you should be able to share what you've learned. You may print out your work from the web or you can create your own product to turn in to Mrs. Carlson for documentation.
    Writing Prompt of the Day:
    {Logo_Discovery_Education.JPG.jpeg} Logo_Discovery_Education.JPG.jpeg
    Here's how you can find some videos that should inspire you to write:
    * After you sign in (see info below) you can click on today's featured video and find a segment that interests you. (You don't have to watch the whole movie: after you click on the movie, you can see the short segments on the side.)
    * Click on the download icon on the right side & it should open up in the Quicktime viewer. (Don't try to stream it directly from the website because it may take a long time to load...)
    Once Quicktime opens you can view the segment and then write down your thoughts. If you have a partner you can discuss it and find out if you have a difference of opinion. Don't forget to give Mrs. Carlson a copy of your work.
