on strike: what do I do with the kids?

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Due to the current labour disruption, we have put together an optional package of work for students. Our current Social Studies work revolves around numerous group activities in order to fulfill the expectations of the grade 7/8 curriculum. We are anticipating studying a country, and participating in an in-depth research project. We will also be doing a project about an historical event.
Here are some things you can do at home. While students are locked out I would suggest that your child :
  • keep a journal
  • keep track of money spent: how much per day or per month does your family spend on groceries, transportation, housing, entertainment? create a dream location: locate your holiday destination(s) on a map, collect maps, brochures and posters for a country
  • prepare a presentation about a holiday
  • write a creative story about where you would like to be this week.

Sincerely,
Ms. J.
