Agenda 2/14/2020

 

Bell work:  Write in your planner.  VPORTAL.  Use computers from BACK OF THE ROOM!  If you have candy and Valentine’s Day goodies, please enjoy, but do not use a computer today.

Homework:

  • Test corrections end today.

  • Reading Log #6 due next week.  (#5 for late credit)

Classwork:

  •  Freedom Quilts. There is much written about the use of quilts during the Underground Railroad days. Known as the Freedom Quilt patterns, these quilts were displayed as signals to slaves that they should begin to pack for the journey (Wagon Wheel), dress up (Shoofly) and get ready to escape (Tumbling Blocks).

  1. Education-Unplugged - We made a paper pieced quilt using the codes for the Underground Railroad.
