Before giving you your regular assignments for the week, I want to go ahead and assign your project on space due May 12. I am attaching 3 activities that you can choose from to do, or you may do another project involving space as long as you get my prior approval. This will count as a test grade. If you have a sibling in 8th grade you may work together with your sibling if you choose, but your project will be due on May 8 instead. When your project is complete simply send me a picture of you with your finished project. If you have a high place to drop the Mars soft landing project from, it is a favorite project of past groups of students.
Complete the rest of your Chapter 10 test (questions 14-25).
