David Sweargingen/Chris Lee, Glide High School, Glide, OR FUN WITH PACIFIC NORTHWEST CITIES AND TOWNS Appropriate for grades 9-12.

TYING IT ALL TOGETHER: Some days nothing works in the classroom. It could be because of the first warm day, an important athletic contest, the day before a vacation, or, sometimes for no apparent reason. I use activities such as this one to salvage something out of these days.
