Friday – October 18, 2013


  • There is a Lunar eclipse tonight ….if we can see it!
  • Great field trip yesterday! A huge thank you to all the parents who were able to give up some time to be with us and make it a very good day!
  • We have a lot to do today, so we have to be really focused and ready to do lots of work!



Period 1 (8:40 – 9:20) – U.o.I.

We are going to complete the Matrix on our wall today for the two belief systems we learned about yesterday.We have to complete the Matrix for both Buddhism and Christianity.

One thing to remember is that the field trips alone will not provide you with all the details you will need to complete your section of the Matrix. Check out the book cart in the hallway for extra information.

Period 2 (9:20 – 10:00) – U.o.I.

You may find your interest might have been aroused by what you saw and heard yesterday. How can you find out more? There are so many things about each belief system that we did not really cover yet.

  • Read the books on the cart!
  • Do further research on the Internet!
  • Ask your parents!
  • Have conversations with each other! Satisfy your curiosity!

Period 3 (10:00 – 10:40) – U.o.I.
