LEARNING TARGET: I CAN determine text importance in a myth. 2) I CAN compare and contrast myths. 3) I CAN write a compare and contrast essay.
Students continued practicing the reading of myths and identifying the characteristics found within. They then compared and contrasted two characters in a myth and worked on their compare and contrast essay of two myths due Friday.

LEARNING TARGET: I CAN identify congruent and similar figures. 2) I CAN classify triangles. 3) I CAN demonstrate that the sum of the angles of a triangle is 180 degrees.
Students learned and discussed what makes a figure congruent and what makes it similar. To be congruent, a figure must be the same shape and same size. We also learned about the classifications of triangles and then interior measurement of angles in a triangle equal 180 degrees. Triangles can be classified by length of sides (scalene, isosceles, equivalent) or measurement of angles (obtuse, right, or acute).
