Substitute Work

In order to give you some freedom and choice in your activities during days that I am absent, I have created a substitute teacher activity grid!  Whenever I am absent, you should choose one of the assignments below to complete during your class time.  The next time I am absent, you may choose another BUT it must be in the same column, row, or diagonal (think BINGO). If I am absent more than four days, you next assignments should begin in another row.   When you complete your assignment, be sure to include the number of the assignment you chose.  *A good place to find a magazine article would be: New Horizons Magazine, TWILA, BEEF Magazine. Any Ag related article you find online can be a substitute.*

Complete work in google docs when possible.
