Miller – 8 ELA – Teaming With Sled Dogs – Week 4/13 – 4/17

Teacher: Miller (


Hi Guys and Gals!

Welcome to week 3 of our online learning.  This week we are going to explore the world of man’s best friend as we take a close look at the sled dog.  As you engage in these activities try to imagine what this experience is like from a dog’s perspective.  You will find the writing task in our Google Classroom.

Please submit work anytime during the week and I will provide feedback in that same forum.  For example, when you turn in an assignment in Google Classroom I will give feedback through Google Classroom.
