Students Absent Thursday-Friday 12/20-12/21

For those students that may be going out of town for the holidays or may not be here this Thursday or Friday they will be missing the midterm.

Those students should complete the midterm over the break and submit their answers to me upon our return in January. I have attached the midterm to this post so you may access it at home or wherever you have access to a computer. Students may write down their answers to the questions on a sheet of loose leaf paper.

They do not have to write the questions only their answers. Students should OMIT questions 76-80.

September 6-9

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.
