Today’s Eagle Time activity is about self-discovery. Sometimes our perceptions about ourselves get in the way of seeing who we are. It would be best to show the links on the Smartboard.

Students can click on the area that pertains to them, and watch or read stories about other people’s experience in school. After they have previewed the content, have the students click on games, choose The Test You Can’t Fail—Find what they are good at. The game takes around 5 minutes, the preview will vary. Students that have finished could go to any of the following and make the world a better place. Free Kibble donates dog food, Free Rice, grains of rice, Click for Charity and Sleedo make donations based on usage of their service.

If you prefer a Black History writing prompt:
Have the students view the art below and analyze the statement the artist is making.

The following are links to Joplin schools from 1888 to the proposed 2014 JHS.

The descriptions are full of information that should show statistics, challenges, and successes that made Joplin Schools the pride of their community. (It is easier to zoom the postcards by holding down control/two fingers on the touch pad.)
