By the end of day Monday, 8/19, ALL students will have received the Tic Tac Toe project for the SS8H1 standard we are learning. All projects are due on Monday and Tuesday (8/26 - 8/27). Students may work on their projects at home, but they will have time this week to work on their projects in class.
Students must choose three mini-projects from the tic-tac-toe board to complete. Choices must form "3 in a row" whether it be across, diagonal, or vertical. Any supplies that students may need to complete the project are available during class, but students may use any materials that they already have at home. Attached you will find a downloadable version of the project and grading rubric.
