Agenda June 26

Agenda

1.  Social Studies Test - Wednesday

2.  Ancient Civilization/First Nations Feast
     The boys and girls have worked out what they are bringing for our Celebration. We have a variety of main dishes, side dishes, desserts and drinks coming for our "pot luck". Since we are the Green Team, everybody is to bring their own dishes, cups and cutlery which can be rinsed off and taken home when we are done. After the eating, we will do our catapult contest and if time permits, play chess. The boys and girls are also encouraged to dress in period costumes related to their research assignment. The feasting begins at 10:40, 1b.

Looking forward to a good time,

Andrew Plater

The boys and girls are celebrating the foods and costumes of the civilization they have studied this term. Next Tuesday we are having a feast, sort of a pot luck, where authentic dishes from their culture will be shared with their classmates. Substitutes are acceptable, if not neccessary. For example, ginger ale for ale, and chicken instead of guinea pig. The feast will start first break and continue until second break. We will also finish up our castle/village projects by having a catapult contest during this time.

The students are encouraged to dress similarly to the way the people of their civilization dressed. It should be a good time.
