Inspiration Mind Mapping

This mind map has good information, but it needs to be organized so it communicates more about the plant parts we eat. "Save as" with your name in the title before rearranging it and connecting the circles under the six main categories. Add other edible plant names to the empty circles. Use the check sheet from Ms. Augustine to take it to the next level.

Paraphrasing an Article About Sleep
Do you know how important sleep is to kids 11-15? Choose the correct article for your grade, and save it to your WtT 09-10 folder. Open the file and read it once carefully. Then read it again and choose a few important words in each paragraph to color using the highlight feature in Word. These words should be essential (the VERY MOST IMPORTANT) to paraphrasing the paragraph in a summary. Your teacher will help you work through the first part of the article. You'll complete the last two parts, and save it in your WtT folder.
