This week in Social Studies the students wrapped up the Middle Ages unit and completed a portfolio of work. There will be no test on the Middle Ages and the portfolio will be the one assessment grade for the unit. The students have already begun investigating the Reformation & Renaissance topics by analyzing the life and impact of Martin Luther. Students created a reenactment of his life in 8 mini scenes in class on Friday.
Next week the focus will also be on the Renaissance time period. We will explore the advancement of science and the arts in Europe. We will specifically examine Leonardo Da Vinci as an example of great Renaissance thinker. There will be a quiz for Renaissance and Reformation at the end of next week.
Have a great 3 day weekend!
