Social Studies 10/13 - 10/16
6th Grade Social Studies:
Students will continue to work with latitude and longitude. We will be finding the location of cities on a world map. Next week, we will have a test over latitude and longitude.
7th Grade Social Studies:
Students will begin discussing the Enlightenment and the Seven Years War. No quizzes or tests this week.
As many of you have heard, my 6th and 7th graders will be participating in the inaugural Pecatonica History Fair. Students will be working individually or as part of a group to create a tri-fold presentation or a Web site. The theme of the history fair is "Turning Points in History". We have already had several workdays and I have approved thesis statements for most of my students. The final project will be due in the spring. At that time, we will display the projects over at the high school. Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
