 Please create five sections in your History section group (or Notebook). 

a.     Start Up

b.    Confederation

c.     Westward Expansion

d.    A Changing Society

e.     WWI

Next, go to my daybook and find the information sheet.  (click "up" from the daybook.)

Print the info sheet to OneNote and move that page into your StartUp section.

Now have a look at the three objects provided by the coverage teacher.  Please handle these objects with care.  They are old and fragile!  Choose two and make up a Fictional story to describe what they might be.  Remember, all of the details are made up. (25 min)

Finally, set up a chart in OneNote (Confederation Section) that looks like the one on page H5 of your online text.  Reading through the first chapter, make notes under the given headings.

**This chart will be the basis of your first quiz!  None of this must be completed for homework.  More time will be given next class.

2.    Add more information to chart (p H5) from the first chapter in the text book.
