Do Now (Voice Level 0) 5 minutes: 
On a half sheet of paper, write today's objectives in your own words. What are the activities you will be completing and how do you know whether or not you completed them? 

Whole Group (Voice Level 0) 10 minutes: 
Independent (Voice Level 0) 40 minutes: 

Task 1: Open up the Washington's Secret Tunnel assignment in Google Classroom. You will need to summarize in the yellow boxes and answer the activity questions. 

Task 2: Watch CNN Student News and write a 6-8 sentence summary (you can do this on google docs and share it with me or on a piece of paper.) 

Early Finishers: Go to CNN, NewsELA, Free Rice, or complete any makeup work. 


At the end of this station, reflect on the objectives you just worked to complete. On your paper you need to write whether or not you met the objective AND how you know this. For example, "Yes I met this objective because I completed all five tabs for the article, summarized everything including the dig deeper, and I scored 88% on the activity!" 

Direct/Collaborative (Voice Level .5 - 1) 40 minutes: 
George Washington's Presidency Timeline. Work with your table groups to select the five most important events of Washington's presidency and add them to your timeline. Make sure you are placing the events in order! 



Early Finishers: Read an article on NewsELA or play typing games, Free Rice, etc. 

At the end of this station, reflect on the objective you just worked to complete. On your paper you need to write whether or not you met the objective AND how you know this. For example, "Yes, I met the objective because I was able to annotate and I am confident I answered at least 8 of the 9 questions correctly."
