Social Studies: We finished our unit on Geography Skills last week. We are now moving into our next unit on "Exploration". Students will be looking at early explorers and people who settled in North America before the era of Columbus. They will then look at some of the changes that took place in Europe in the 1400s-1700s that would lead to the modern era of exploration. Students will have two worksheets this week that will need to be completed. If they are not finished in class, then students will need to complete them for homework.
Language Arts: Students have been given a study guide as homework to complete and use as practice/ studying for an assessment scheduled for Monday and Tuesday of next week. As in social studies, we will also be studying explorers to understand the difference between primary and secondary sources, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of each.
Languages: Students will continue to research South American, Spanish speaking countries as they work to complete a country project . In addition, we will review animals and learn the names of family members.
Math: Students are working toward their fist assessment, which can be expected within the next week or two… stay tuned! This is a module (Unit) assessment of the skills presented and practice in this first trimester.
Have a nice week!
