8th Grade Extra Credit

Extra Credi Here we go. 8th graders please email your answers to Mr. Weinrich. However, your answers will not be valid unless you comment on the level of difficulty, interest, and length of time it took you to email your answers. You may only participate once. Also, the first 3 people in each 8th grade class will be eligible for 10% on what ever they want.

Question 1- Name the exact date, location (city and state) of the First Observance of Thanksgiving, and what does the month and day have in common with Mr. Weinrich?

Question 2- Who was the first President to issue a Thanksgiving proclamation? When did he sign it (month, day, and year)? When was it to be observed?

    hi ppl!!!!!! why are there no comments???? ok, for the extra credit thing, Mr. Weinrich should for now put whoever leaves a comment gets Extra Credit until a lot of people leave comments. then, he should ask weekly historical questions and whoever emails him the answers gets a certain amount of Extra Credit. Or, he should have you turn it in to him at school, or post it in the comment section of his blog…

  2. Uuuuhhh…maybe you could give us some information and have us create a song or rap about it. Then make us perform it in class to earn the extra credit. (You could get more points the more creative and into it you are) Come on, Mr. Weinrich, it’s a chance for you to humiliate your students in front of their peers. And the best part is, they would willingly do it. How funny would that be?

    Please take this into consideration. I tried to think outside the box.


  3. you should take away your lowest test grade at the end of the quarter and add 10% to it. Or you can make your lowest homework grade a 100%.


  4. opps sorry wrong one!!!!

  5. I think a good extra credit option would be to be able to do extra credit is picking a historical landmark in Ourange county and Bringing in a picture of it and a brief summor. You could get a free assignment or 5% on a test

    Hi Mr. Weinrich
    i think you should ask us to go to a place/like a museum and bring back a ticket as a sign of proof and when we do we get a free homework assignment, or 5% extra credit on a test

  8. Hey! 1st 8th grader to post! Yeeah! Okay, so I was thinking you could do like something cool, like you ask a question like “If you were president instead of Abraham Lincoln, what have you have done differntly?” or something like that! Cuz that would be super dee dooper amazingly awesome and cool! C U L8R Alligator! Ciao!

    Oh yeah,, it would be worth 5% on any assignment you want!!
    (or w/e mr. weinrich wants it to be!)

    Kelsey Jones….. out! haha! ok i’m done! C YA!

  9. hehehe yet aanother comment by me!!!!!!!!!!! :] im sure mr weinrich is happy about that!! (not really!) ok………… so… for EC mr W should have a contest of some sort with ppl putting a link (for a video or sometthing) on the comment page and whoever has the best one wins the EC

    Hello 7th grade (and Mr. Weinrich),

    Hey Mr. Weinrich i agree with caitlyn on her idea that would be cool, but we could also contest where we do a keynote on one of the lessons we just learned and the top 5 people you thought put some thought & effort in the keynote gets the xtra credit.

  12. You should put trivia questions on your blog and the top 5 or 10 people should get an amount of extra credit points on a test. (Your Choice) And we should keep on playing the study game in class!! Thanks!! πŸ™‚

  13. Hi Mr. Weinrich,
    I think for extra credit you should weekly post different trivia questions about history and the first 10 people to answer them gets extra credit on a history test.
    1t- 10%
    2nd- 9%
    so on and so on.
    That would be really good and it would get us to look at your blog more often.
    I think that would be a good idea.

  14. Hi Mr. Weinrich, I agree with Caitlyn’s brilliant idea. I also have my own idea that you would list some ingredients from sushi rolls and we would have to guess what roll that is! It is a little strange but o well!

  15. i think you should give 10% extra credit on a test or a free assignment up to the first 5 students in each class not grade

  16. I think for extra credit you should ask a random question from information in the newspaper and if we get it right we could get a free assignment or 5% points on a test.


  17. Could we do extra credit if you print some facts about a place and we have to tell you the name of it? It could be from our geography states or anywhere?

    It might be fun.
