Gold Rush, Women, Mormons, and Missions - 4/13/2016

ESSENTIAL QUESTION/BIG IDEA: What were the push/pull factors that contributed to American westward expansion in the 1800s?

HOMEWORK: Be kind to others.

1. Gold Rush, Women, Mormons, and Missions - READING HERE

  • Create a four-rectangle graphic organizer like the one above
  • Read the FOCUS article Mr. Ippolito has assigned to your group first; take notes on that article and prepare to share your findings with the class; become an EXPERT on that topic
  • If you have time after you finish your focus article, read and take notes on the other articles in the series
  • When reading time is up, Mr. Ippolito may call upon your group to present to us about your focus topic--BE PREPARED!!

2. Eighth grade trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain - Wednesday, June 1, 2016
  • Trip isn't until the last week of school, but we need to order buses early! Therefore, permission slips and money are due SUPER early (by 4/29) so don't miss out!
  • Students arrive at 10am and will be checking in at their bus table to receive their shirt and write down their cell #, etc...  We do not know yet if we have wrist bands, but if we do, students will also get wristbands at this time.
  • Students must wear their shirt before entering the bus.
  • 5. Once you arrive at MM, teachers will pass out a ticket to each student. For season pass students, you must show you their season pass at check-in to receive your shirt.  No season pass = NO Magic Mtn. trip
  • 6. Students will need to meet at the exit of the park at 7:45pm SHARP!
