Yes, here’s a post about the dreaded weekend homework!
1) Arrays posters. If you took yours home to fix it up, you will have this to work on. Remember, you need to include 4 pictures of real life arrays (there are some below if you need them!), grid paper models (you can easily print grid paper after an images search for 1cm grid paper), what each of your arrays shows and a list of the other factors and YOUR definition of what an array is.
2) Immigration Timeline- the due date for these is fast approaching- Wednesday 2nd of April.
You need to include the who, what, when, where, why for these 10 events: 10 Pound Poms, Populate or Perish, The Gold Rush, White Australia Policy, The Great Depression, The First Fleet, Modern Day Refugees, World War 2 and one of your own choice. You also need to include a text box with information about Indigenous Australians who were here before European Settlement.
Some of you have almost finished (well done!) others will need to do some serious work on this over the weekend.
3)Time Zones Table. You need to include 10 cities and their countries, their time in analogue and digital, the date and how many hours they are behind or ahead of Australia. Here’s the time zone website to help you out: http://www.timeanddate.com/time/map/
It is to your advantage to have this finished ready for next week- it will form part of our writing task.
4) Any blog posts you have not finished… there were several of them- check the other blog posts to see where you have missed one.
5) Your connections table on visual texts- see the post below.
6) Your organising timetable on your after school activities.
If this looks like a lot to you, then you really need to consider how much of it is ‘true’ homework. The majority of these tasks are finishing tasks that YOU DID NOT finish in class time. If you have a lot of finishing to do at home, you really need to be considering how effectively you are working in class…
