4th Quarter Newspaper Project
For the next several weeks you will be expected to read the newspaper very faithfully. You will make a scrapbook
of various articles you have cut out of the newspaper. If you do not receive a newspaper at home you will have access to one
at school. The scrap book can be made out of notebook paper. It does not have to be anything elaborate.
The Scrapbook will be divided
into four specific sections.
Section One- This section will be entitled Government of the United States. In this section you will place articles dealing with the
federal government and the people in it. Ant articles dealing with the President, House of Representatives, Senate, Supreme
Court, Cabinet, etc., will be acceptable in this section. (15 articles)

something significant. (15 Articles)

Umatilla County, or the city of Pendleton will be acceptable. (10 Articles)
