This week in Social Studies the focus has been on map skills and Geography. Students took a quiz on Tuesday on Map Skills which were graded and returned today. The grades will be updated in Powerschools over the weekend. I was also super impressed with the maps they created of their bedrooms. There was a great deal of effort put forth on the details and labeling all the TALDOGS map elements.
Next week the focus will be on the 5 themes of Geography. The students will be studying the 5 themes and creating a country project based on the themes as well. It will be a mostly in class project, but there may be some portions that will be finished at home if they begin to fall behind. Tuesday there will be a quiz on the Continents and Oceans. There are materials on the Google Classroom to help them study for this.
Take care and have a great weekend.
