1) Warm Up: Creative Responses & Organizational Time (10 min)
  1. Option 1: Continue writing a story or working on a drawing you have started.
  2. Option 2: Respond to one of the following prompts in writing or drawing:
    1. Write a story where a character's weakness works in their favor (see picture above).
    2. Illustrate and add captions showing what you would have in your 10 day review survival kit. Include your favorite snacks, necessary items (calculator), your playlist, etc. 
    3. Apparently they sell "Law School in a Box" kits. What would be in a "LEC in a Box" kit? Name and justify at least 6 things.
  3. Option 3: Organize your binders and notebooks so you can find materials as we begin to study. (See me if you need help!)
