And yes, I do plan on getting some work done.

This week we’ll be watching an exciting reality show called “Colonial House.” A history buffs dream, the show places a number of families in the New England wilderness and makes them live as if it’s 1610.

We’ll watch clips of it throughout the week. While watching, students write down thoughts and facts. At the beginning of the period, they’ll turn a “Journal Entry” as if they were a colonist.

Should be fun, light, and a good introduction into the 8th grade curriculum.
