The Houston Holocaust Museum is collecting butterflies to represent the children who died in the Holocaust. We will be making butterflies in class on March 25. They will be displayed for one week and then sent to Houston. Please consider bringing your own art supplies to school to make your butterflies.
We are creating butterflies to send to the Holocaust Museum of Houston in their effort to collect 1.5 million butterflies in rememberance of the children who died in the Holocaust.
Bring your own art supplies if you wish; I will provide the basics. Butterflies will be displayed in the classroom until Spring Break, when they will be sent to Houston.
UPDATE: 78 butterflies were sent to the Holocaust Museum of Houston this morning. Thank you so much to all of you who participated!
I know this isn’t the most fun thing you’ve ever done, but believe me, you’ll write LOTS more of these in the future!
1. Write BIBLIOGRAPHY in all caps centered on the top line.
2. Make sure your entries are in alphabetical order on your rough draft. (just number them or something)
3. Skip a line, then begin your first entry left justified (on the left edge of the paper). If you need to go to the next line, don’t skip a space, but indent the second and all the following lines for that entry. It ends up looking like a reverse paragraph.
4. Skip a space to write your next entry, and begin over on the left edge again.
Bibliographies are NOT numbered.
Don’t forget all the little picky punctuation. Book titles are underlined, short story titles go in quotation marks, and you never use both for the same title.
Your bibliographies for the Resistance paper are due Wednesday at the beginning of the hour. It’s worth ten points and I’ll take off one point per mistake, but you can’t go into negative numbers.
