If you saw my post from Saturday about home learning, please know that there is a change of plans.

I will be meeting with classes for fifteen minute periods, with five minute breaks between classes.

7/8E- 10:20-10:35

These meetings are not mandatory. They are brief check-ins if you have any questions or if you want to pop-in for the social interactions. Meetings will be recorded and available for later viewing.

3) Who makes decisions and laws in Canada?
