Fall Holidays

Hi students!

I hope you are enjoying this cool fall weather. Our families have different ways we celebrate the coming of fall. Some families celebrate Halloween or Thanksgiving, some have family traditions of visiting a pumpkin patch or watching football.

One of my family traditions is to watch the Peanuts movies for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've included an excerpt from "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown."

What is one way your family celebrates in the fall? Please post your comment below.

Have a great weekend!

Causes of the Revolution

We have discussed some of the causes of the Revolutionary War, and this video outlines those reasons.

After watching this video, I would like for you to leave a comment including one fact about the Revolutionary War. Once again, you can't list a fact that anyone else has mentioned, so the sooner the better. Your facts may be from the video, from class discussions, or from your own research.

The due date for this assignment is Friday, October 23rd.
