F3 Fall Update and.... the 2014 Global Reading Challenge!!!

The day has come!  The Seattle Public Library has released the titles for the 2014 Global Reading Challenge!  Fifteen students in F3 have signed up and are excited to get their hands on the books.

What else is happening in F3? We're nearing the end of a beloved science unit, Models and Designs.  Starting next week students will learn about Earth, Moon, Sun and the stars. Students have had a great time being engineers and coming up with excellent designs and running exciting experiments.

KOF3 Radio has started off very well.  This year KOF3 will be almost entirely student run as we have students that will be in charge of uploading all of the episodes to our class website.  So far we have had episodes on the themes of Camp Seymour and "F3 goes Exploring".  The next theme will be "Scared".

Learning about Native Tribes now AND before 1492

Go to Delicious and find a tribe that you would like to learn more about.  Is the tribe still in the same place now as it is shown on the map above?  What does the tribe do now according to its website?
