This week in Social Studies the students completed their first unit on Geography. The students completed a group project which required them to display items to be packed in a suitcase related to each of the Five Themes of Geography. They also took a Geography Unit test on Wednesday, which will be returned to them on Monday.
Yesterday and today the focus was on the migration patterns of hunter gatherer societies. This will lead into the next unit of Mesopotamia and Egypt, where some of the oldest civilizations developed. We will begin this unit next week.
Hope you have a great weekend!
ps- Ask your student if his or her tribe “survived” the hunter gatherer simulation activity today : )
