Warm up 11-30

Posted by seanmorr on November 30, 2012

First, check out some guiness world record holders

including this guy – http://photoblog.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/27/15497808-moustafa-ismail-the-man-with-the-worlds-largest-biceps?lite

more records – http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/44531570

you don’t have to write about any photos today

 

Instead answer these questions as your last entry in this journal – your answers will NOT affect your grade

  • How is the class going for you?
  • what do you like?
  • what don’t you like?
  • any suggestions?  what could be improved?

NOW –  you will be turning in your journal as P#lastnamejournal2
