WELCOME BACK!

It was a “flurry” of activity today as we try to catch back up!

ALL BLOCKS:  The warm-up quiz will be on Friday!  It will cover warm-ups #61-80.  DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO GET ANY YOU MISSED!

Blocks 3, 4, and 5:  Today ended our Economics of Europe unit.  Students reviewed the responses to the questions in the Economic Handbook packet and recorded those for a test grade.  We also moved our goodies from our Unit of Study to graded papers….The economic vocabulary terms and the trade barriers handout have been moved to the reference section.

Blocks 6 and 7:  We completed our discussion about economic factors including the role of the entrepreneur in a strong economy.  Students received the rubric for the brochure (TEST GRADE), which is due on Friday.  Students had time to work on this in class.  The questions in the Economic Handbook packet should all be completed and will be turned in tomorrow.

Hope you had a great day friends!

Blocks 3, 4, and 5:  Students looked at the economies of Russia, Germany and the United Kingdom.  Complete questions 6,7, and 8 in the Economic packet.

Block 6 and 7:  Students discussed the importance of both human and physical capital in building an economy as well of the role of natural resources.  Students also completed questions in the economic packet and have now answered questions 1-22.  Sections in the brochure that should be completed today were the human and physical capital needed for their product and the role natural resources will have in the development of their product idea.

Happy Friday Eve!

We continue to move through our lessons on money!

All students will have a warm-up quiz on Tuesday, Feb, 17th!  Warm-ups #61-80 will be included.

Didn’t finish the research?  Feel free to use a lap top during homeroom!

You know what day it is!

Blocks 3, 4, and 5 discussed the importance of the human and physical capital of a strong economy.  We also discussed how trade barriers are part of a strong economy.

Blocks 6 and 7:  We discussed how economies can be manipulated by various trade barriers and why governments may put them into place.  Groups completed the “Great Ideas” poster as they move closer to creating an economic plan.  BLOCK 6:  On the brochure template, you need to draw (neatly and thoughtfully) a picture of your product and create a name.  THIS IS NOT AN AD!  This is the only part you need to complete for tomorrow.

If you are attending the Band/Chorus field trip tomorrow and miss Social Studies, be sure to check back tomorrow for what you missed and will need to make-up!  Have fun and be safe!
