Where learning is always sweet!

The test is closer than you think…

We are nearing the end of our economic study of Europe and our time in the region.  Next stop is Canada!  There is one more thing we need to take care of-our Unit 4 test.

Today students completed notes on the economy of United Kingdom, Germany, and Russia.  Students then received a test practice sheet-we are looking at scenarios this time-LOTS of deep thinking on this time!

For the test:

-Start with the unit standards-what do you need to know AND what lessons will help you with that?

-Organize the materials by standard if not already done so.  You should ALWAYS work on on piece at a time.  Use the standard as your guide-not a worksheet!

Quizizz and Quizlet are available for this unit too….look back in the blog for those!

J’ai tres faim (I am very hungry)

Today’s “visit” to the World Food Court made me so hungry!

Our task:  order the food you and your partner would like to have to experience cuisine from around the world.  Convert their money into our money….THEN revise your menu to meet our budget of $10 per partner.  We then began creating a menu that truly was a WORLD Food Court-we take all kinds of money!  You will continue to work on your menu in class tomorrow.  COLOR PENCILS NEEDED! Remember, I don’t have those for you anymore!

TEST on Feb 2.  Unit 4-Economics of Europe.
