Your wonderful and amazing General Music teacher has an assignment for you. Research the planet assigned to you and write your answers on the paper you are given. In addition to writing your answers, you must also list the website where you found the information.

Students are to work alone.

Papers are turned in at the end of class. No paper, no grade. It’s important, guys.

These websites are to be viewed by everyone:
