Artist of the Week: Homework
In our school system science and social studies are only taught for one semester in sixth grade. Half the sixth grade takes Science in the first semester and the other half Social Studies. Then at the start of the second semester they switch.
Jake was taking Social Studies during the first semester. This week marks the beginning of the second semester. His first assignment was to make a picture of a scientist. Note he also had to have me sign his permission form to participate in the science fair, so I'm fairly confident that the assignments will become a bit more academically rigorous.
