Count down to break already! 4 more to go!

and those will be a busy 4 days!  Today students began a study of the Languages of Europe.  We looked at our unit standards to guide our focus.  REMEMBER:  our unit standards serve as our study guide!  The test will be on Thursday over Unit 1 (no maps-already did that).  Environment, comparing countries, languages, religions, and the relationship between literacy rate and standard of living will be covered on the test.

No homework tonight EXCEPT to study for the test.  You have the extended response prep paper from Friday.  Work on that as well!

Have a great night!

Happy Friday friends!

All blocks celebrated Constitution Day!  We had our minds blown that the founding fathers were so smart…..they predicted what GeoBees would be considered with 229 years later!  AMAZING!

In preparation for the Unit One test on Thursday, students were given an extended response prep worksheet.  This can be used for the test… on test day…during the test AND can be used for bonus points!


Have a wonderful weekend!

Back at it….closer to show what you know!

Today students began a study of environmental issues in Europe.  Today we took notes on the causes, effects and solutions of acid rain in Germany.  We also annotated our unit standards to see what is the expectation for the test that will be on September 22.

No homework but it is always a good idea to look over notes in preparation for the test!

FRIDAY dance!

ALL BLOCKS:  We will have a Unit 1 test on September 22.  There is still material to cover-we are only half way there BUT it is never too early to start reviewing for the test.

ALL students have been encouraged a primary document interview with a family member or family friend in remembrance of the events of September 11, 2001.  This is not a homework assignment as I will not collect the document.  It is an opportunity to preserve the experiences for future generations.
