A Snowy BlogWork!


Hey everyone. I wish I were wearing the pink wig today. Oh well, perhaps we will return to school tomorrow. I'm not ready to make a prediction yet.

BlogWork

Go to the following website: National Geographic.

Pick one of the links on the page describing a habitat (sustainable agriculture, grasslands, deserts, etc.).

Read the whole article about that habitat and then write 5 - 10 good questions about the article.
