Tuesday, January 5: Today we briefly discussed the Donner Party. With their clock partner, students read a passage about the Donner Party and found at least 8 causes and effects to write on W. 68. If absent, the reading is on the documents page. We then learned about the Mormon migration to Utah with some map notes on W. 69. If absent, please read T. 98-108 for the missed information, as well as getting the notes from a peer or Ms. Nay.
