***Important**** = If you were absent and unable to see the wonder wand example during the zoom session, it is okay to skip #1 and #4. I can't share the video yet because it will give away the answer which I will share later when everyone completes the assignment. :)

Engage with your class/Discussion Question!  in Google Classroom

Engage with your class/Discussion Question!

Hi Class!
-After our zoom lesson related to privacy online, here is a discussion question to answer. I wanted to give you an opportunity to engage with and start to get to know your classmates because the first assignment, the survey questions from Monday/Tuesday, won't be shared with students.

For fun.....
-QUESTION: If you got to choose one place anywhere in the world to visit for an end of the year field trip, where would you pick and why?
-Please answer the question in 3 - 5 (or more) complete sentences. You can include some of the fun things you would want to do while visiting the place you picked.

-Respond to at least 2 students comments (2-3 sentences), in a respectful way also using complete sentences.
Some examples: You may:
1.Agree and add on
2.Explain a connection
3.Did they teach you something new or give you a new idea

Note:
-Just make sure to be kind in your responses
-I don't think you will be able to see other posts until you post your own.

When finished, hope you have a great weekend and see you on Monday/Tuesday next week!
