Warm-up 9/12 “Imagine that on the way home from school today, you step in wet concrete and leave a shoe print behind. A thousand years from now, archaeologists (social scientists who study how people lived in the earlier times by examining the remains of what they left behind) uncover this shoe print. What will archaeologists most likely conclude about your life by studying the shoe print you left behind?” (write answer in binder or on device) Homework 9/12: Continue studying vocabulary!
