Checking in and Homework for Monday April 27th

Hello Students, 

I trust you are being well behaved and respectful. I am taking a chance on letting you film your tourist projects without my presence. Make me proud! Don't worry if you don't get to film your project or get to be the cameraman for another student's project. If you are able to work well with each other today, we will be making many more movies before the end of the year. 

I have also heard there are many teachers and students out sick today. Make sure to wash your hands often. 

Homework for Monday: 
  1. Study for West Region Quiz (Capitals are extra credit)
  2. Read and log
  3. For those that didn't film, practice your script
