Here, I'll be adding the steps of our research.  If you miss a day, please check here.  We'll use Google Docs for most of this assignment.  When each item is due, you can turn it in by sharing it with agarrison@skiatookschools.org.  When sharing it with me, please select the "Can Comment" option.

*Remember, if you are using a student Gmail account, it's the first letter of your first name + your last name @student.skiatookschools.org.*
