This Week's Blogging Tasks


Hello my trusty grade 6/7s!

You have three blogging tasks this week:

1. If you haven't finished your writing piece on whether or not we should be judged on our appearance - that should be your first priority.

2. Complete this week's blog question: If you could have dinner with three famous people (and I am using the term "famous" pretty loosely here) dead or alive, who would they be and why? What restaurant would you take them to? Make sure you develop your answer before you publish to the web.

It could be a scientist that you've read about, a humanitarian, an obscure musician, or a little-known poet. Do some research and put a lot of thought into this. I am really curious to know who you come up with and I can't wait to read your responses.

Don't forget to include pictures and perhaps a good video if you come across one.

3. Your final task this week is to comment on at least five (5) different student's blogs.

Biodiversity Quiz

Welcome to your first online assignment Grade 6's!

Feel free to use any resource you would like to find the answer. However, you must work by yourself. Take your time and read the questions carefully. I want to try and eliminate all silly mistakes. :-)

I've tried to make things a little easier by embedded the quiz right into the blog. However, if you would like to see a full-screen version, just click this link.

Good luck!

Mr. Boettger :-)

Dolphin Tale - Finding Inspiration

The movie Dolphin Tale is based on a true story.  In fact, Winter, the dolphin in the movie, is the actual dolphin who lost her tail.

I would like you to watch the trailer of the movie and then answer the following questions:

1.  How can this story of survival and people coming together to do the impossible inspire you?

2.  What is an obstacle in your life that seems impossible? What can you do to try to overcome that obstacle?

3.  As you can see from Dolphin Tale, they have to reach out to others and ask for help to make their goal a reality.  Who can you ask for help?

Or please visit the official site for the movie here: Dolphin Tale

I am looking forward to hearing your responses!

Your Profile Assignment

Your task this week is to complete the good copy of the profile assignment on your blog.

Don't forget to:

1. Make sure all of your corrections have been completed (the pink highlights).

2. Proofread your good copy one last time BEFORE publishing to the web.

3. Include a picture (don't forget to give credit to the site where you got the picture) and an embedded video (if you can find one) in your blog post. If you are unsure of how to embed a video, please see me or watch the video below.

I am looking forward to seeing and reading everyone's finished product!

Mr. Boettger  :-)
