Welcome back for Quarter 3

Welcome Back Students and Parents,

Students last week should have finished and turned in a country shape project. Students were expected to research a country in Europe and create a booklet in the shape of that country.

Students were given at least three day in class to work and create the booklet. It is the first big project grade for this semester.

Students will now be moving on to Australia. We will be taking a Pretest on 1/16 and starting the Geography of Australia the next day. I will be posting various sites and resources to help study for Australia.
