Welcome back!

Here we go! Let’s have a great end of the school push!



7th graders, you are about to finish your Fireworks lessons and will soon create an assessment showcasing all your skills. You’ll start learning about copyright, and your new blogs are ready for you to set them up. Lots to do!

8th Grade Tech, you’ll be working on your Thinglinks the first week, then we’ll move into projects that will help you get ready for high school!

Yearbook, congratulations, we did it! We’ll be reflecting this week, then we’ll work on projects similar to the 8th Grade Tech class. High school is around the corner, let’s finish 8th grade as the fantastic students I know you are!

(By the way, I had fun creating the graphic above using the Recite This website.)

NASA is collecting selfies from around the world on April 22nd. If you remember, take a selfie outside (with something in nature behind you), holding a sign telling where you are

NASA’s directions from the Earth Right Now webpage:

Post your photo to Twitter, Instagram or Google+ using the hashtag #GlobalSelfie, or post it to the #GlobalSelfie event page on Facebook or the #GlobalSelfie group on Flickr. You can also join the #GlobalSelfie Google+ event page.

NASA’s goal is to create an image of the Earth using the selfies taken on Earth Day. It will be published in May. (Make sure you tag them #GlobalSelfie)

You can make your own sign to hold up or you can print a sign here. (Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you can download it.)
