For your first assignment I want you to write a paragraph or make a list of descriptions about the place where you are from. Be descriptive in describing where you are from in this list/paragraph but do not name where you are from. You can describe the weather, the temperature during different seasons, or simply close your eyes and describe the pictures you see when you think of home. At the end of your paragraph/list write down the continent, country, and region where you are from. After completeting your assignment make sure your name is on it and turn it in to me. We will be playing a introductory game with this in Lesson 3.
