Milestones Resource Study Guie 8th Grade
This link will direct you to the 8th grade Georgia Milestones Study Guide Resource. It includes all subject areas Math, Science, ELA, and Social Studies.
We will be working on the social studies section in class this week and on Monday before testing. Testing begins on Tuesday April 10th. If students cannot finish in time during class they may access the online resource here.
This week we are continuing Unit 3 on Georgia’s Colonization.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be dedicated to England’s 13 colonies: Students must complete a graphic organizer on the New England, Middle, and Southern colonies along with questions about each including a short response paragraph. Also students will complete a map of the 13 colonies color coding the New England, Middle, and Southern ones.
Thursday Students will be assigned a person or group from the colonization of Georgia. They will create a “trading” card for their person or group and will then move about the class, taking notes on the other persons/groups on a graphic organizer.
Friday Students will view a PowerPoint of all of the Trading Card people/groups. The class will discuss the significance of each person/group. They will then be asked to pretend they were creating a new colony in North America. They will have to make a plan as to who they would bring and why, and what supplies they would need.
This week students will be working in groups to complete a poster representing 1 of six different topics
1.reasons for Spanish colonization in Georgia
2.reasons for French colonization in Georgia
3.reasons for English colonization in Georgia.
4.information on De Soto colonizing Georgia
5. information about the Protestants who colonized in Georgia
6. information about the Spanish missions that took place in Georgia
Each group will be assigned one topic from above, and will have Monday and Tuesday to complete their poster. Each group will present on Wednesday and all groups will take notes and classmates’ presentations.
Students will be using the coach books and articles that I have found on these topics to collaborate with their group members during those two class periods.
Thursday and Friday students will be completing a 13 colonies handout using a class set of articles.
Leading up to this week we have been talking about Georgia’s geography and the early native Americans who occupied Georgia. Students have completed a P.A.W.M. (paleo, archaic, woodland, mississippian indians) graphic organizer as well as completed an I.D.M. (Inquiry design model) on the PAWM indians. Today we had our first unit test and the rest of this week will be utilized to introduce unit 3 Georgia’s colonization.
