Today's Learning Objectives * Learn about the physical and social development of early humans through archaeological discoveries. * Provide a summary of the text distinct from person opinions or judgements.
More information about 'Lucy' and her discovery from our Social Studies textbook can be found below.
Writing a Summary Paragraph After you have gathered basic facts and information about 'Lucy' and her discovery, you are going to demonstrate what you’ve learned about the topic by writing a short summary (using the same Writing an Event Summary - 'Lucy' document). Your summary should include only the most relevant information, be composed of your own words and original sentences, and not include opinions or judgements. For a reminder on summary writing check we will watch a video about the topic from our friends at Flocabulary.
FYI: The 'Five W's and One H' component of this project will count towards your grade as a classwork assignment. Meanwhile, the 'Summary' will count towards the assessment portion of your Social Studies grade. The Writing an Event Summary - 'Lucy' document will be due next Friday, September 2.
Don't forget that your Studying the Distant Past - Cognitive Content Dictionary is due and must be 'turned-in' tomorrow, August 26, in order to receive full credit.
