Hello Global Citizens and Math Brains! I am posting links to some learning opportunities that you may like. All of these are OPTIONAL and will not be turned in or graded, but since I have had a lot of you ask for ideas of things to practice over the summer, I though I would share some ideas with you!
Social Studies: Here are some links for topics you may find interesting.
Latitude and Longitude – This video explains with useful animations latitude and longitude, which confuses lots of kiddos. Understanding how lines of latitude and longitude are used will help you in future social studies and geography classes.
Crash Course Videos – This channel has many videos that cover European and world history, economics, and technology. The videos are animated, short, and interesting.
Durham Media Center – Here you will find instructions for logging into the Cobb Digital Library, where you can access multiple resources covering many topics. These resources are available to you 24/7 as a CCSD student.
National Geographic Channel – National Geographic has a TON of videos, some are short clips and some are full length, that cover a broad range of topics relating to history, current events, environmental issues, science, and culture.
Math: Listed below are links to integer games. Some of these I have already shared, some are new. You may need to scroll to the bottom of the page to find the game, and depending on your device you may need to enable Adobe Flash. On the Jeopardy games, click the picture of the Jeopardy money board to start the game.
Here are some videos for mental math tricks. If you like impressing people with your big, juicy math brain these are for you!
Want to prepare for 7th grade? Set up a Khan Academy account. https://www.khanacademy.org/. This is free, but you need permission from your parents and you will need to use their email to set it up. If you struggled with 6th grade math concepts, you should choose the 6th grade math mission. If you were successful with 6th grade math, you can choose the 7th grade math mission. Even if you don’t finish this mission, what you practice will help you for the next school year.
Good luck and have fun! Let me know if you need any help. Have a wonderful summer. 🙂
