Mr.Pro talked about the smog form. Here are the forms. We used some of these answers on the Smog Class Outline.
Then we watched Brainpop videos on air pollution and ozone.
Mr.Pro showed us the outline to use for the essay we are writing in class on Tuesday.
Then we picked books with a partner and answered the questions that are in the book on the document. You aren't supposed to answer the same questions as your partner. You are supposed to answer one question each. We used skills like summarizing information from texts to answer the question. We also cited works and used in-text citations when answering our questions.
Here is an example:
Respond in 1-2 sentences with in-text citation.
Write one further question that relates to your response.

Describe how climate change affects polar bears.
Polar bears can be affected by weather change by making the ice melt, and that may leave the bear without eating for months.(Woodward)
What can we do to help the bears?
Woodward, John. "Plight of the Polar Bear." Climate Change. N.p.: n.p., n.d. N. pag. Print.
For the last part of class, we watched a video that has to do with global warming.
Remember that on Tuesday you will get two textbooks that you can use to write your essay.
For your in-class essay:
- Know what topic you will write on.
- Memorized your outline.
- Remember to use:
- Review how to do in-text citation.
