Wed/Thurs Block. Topic: Achievements of the Stone Age people. Students will be receiving their textbooks today for all their classes. Textbooks are to remain at home for homework.

Then students will rank the achievements and defend their rankings to each other and then in a paragraph. Finally,we'll make small story board illustrations of some of the achievements of the Stone Age people. No HW.
