Class Update: Week of March 19, 2018
History: We will have a test on the Roaring 20’s and the Great Depression on Thursday of this week. We will review first by playing Kahoot and Quizlet. Make sure your students is studying their note pages as they contain all the answers to the test!
We are moving through World War 2 right now. The students learned about the causes of World War 2, and the rise of Adolph Hitler of Post Great War Germany. We are covering topics such as Winston Churchill, War rationing, Rosie the Riveter, Axis Powers, Allied Powers, D-Day, the Battle of Midway, Pearl Harbor, FDR, and more. We will be covering the end of the war and the use of the Atomic Bomb with the students, which can be a tough topic to discuss. After World War 2, we will be moving through the Cold War with the Soviet Union next week.
ELA: This week we are covering verbs and using the appropriate verb tenses. We will continue to work on a comparative writing prompt where the students must compare and contrast two topics of their choice. They have a new set of 15 vocabulary words this week, and will have a quiz on them Friday.
Math: This week in math we are studying Metric and Customary measurement systems. We will learn about how the two systems are different, the units of measurement we use, and how to convert from one unit to another. For Example, 2 meters = 200 centimeters.
