Today in class students began their research for the severe weather project. The rubric is under the resources tab. There are 4 due dates. The first was for deciding which of the four types of severe weather you would like to research. The next is for the completed quilt piece (Nov 3). The next due date is for all research to be done (Dec 8). Finally the finished and well researched product is due Dec 21. Merry Christmas to me!
