Block 1:  We worked on our Fiddle Faddle Factory project today…one more day (Tuesday) to finish!

Blocks 2,3, 4, and 5:  We stopped to enjoy the view from Europe so far….students were given a study guide and time to work on in class.  As we have not yet covered all the material for the unit, students will not have complete study guides….yet!  The test will be Oct. 7th and will have the information they need by that date!  The items to complete by now….8, 11, 16, 20-25 and 27 and 28.  I encouraged the students to study these over the break and then they would have less material to include when we return.

A Day to Remember

Today, all classes reflected upon the events of September 11, 2001.  Students were given a document that can be made into a primary document by interviewing a parent, grandparent, etc.  and asking for their experience that day.  I am encouraging all students to take the opportunity to do this…it will be something that will be treasured for generations to come.  Please ask your child to share.  It will not be collected, it is for your family to keep.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Adding layers

Today students participated in Challenge 4 of our Europe/Russia mapping lab.  Relationships between climate, location, natural resources and where people live were being made.  Tomorrow will be our last Challenge-all the layers are out together.  No homework.
