Reagan GoAnimate Measurement Topics



Today we will be reviewing the work that has been selected from your fellow students for this measurement topic. It is important that spelling is correct and sentences make sense. It is also important that not only do we give a definition but also give an example. Keep an eye out for students that use metaphors and similes in their videos.

I am still looking for students to complete the work for the higher level prompts. The higher level prompts are as follows



  •  how the principles of the Magna Carta formed the foundation of the democratic   
             ideals in another modern country
  •  how the moral and political ideas of the Great Awakening impact modern society
  •  how individual rights have been violated and secured over time
  •  how the world would be different today had the Revolutionary War had a different outcome
  • teaches the level 3 knowledge to someone else resulting in evidence that learning occurred


Below is your study guide for tomorrows test.
