In keeping with the theme of resolutions, we will be examining several of them over the next two days. First we will start by looking at Ben Franklin and his almanac. Using the information Miss Lamb gives you in class, please complete the steps. When most of us have completed our study of Ben Franklin's Autobiography and Almanac, we will then move onto the Declaration of Independence. We will watch Miss Lamb's Prezi and complete several activities.
