Hope you got to have some fun today in the snow!

World History Students:  Here are 3 things you can be doing during these days off:

  1. Your Revolutions Project – It’s STILL due on TUES, 2/18! Questions? Send me an email.
  2. Your Study Guide (see downloads) – Remember, it’s worth 5 bonus points on your test!
  3. Your French Revolution Timeline (see downloads) – This is ONLY for bonus points on your packet. Plus, it will help you review the order of events in the French Revolution, which will be VERY helpful on your next test!

P.S. Leave me a comment on this page about what you did today, and I’ll give you a bonus point on your project!
