Where learning is always sweet!

Thankful for you my lil’ turkies!

We completed our study of the Heroes of the Holocaust today and began creating a commemorative stamp to honor those who resisted injustice!  See Parent Vu if you were absent to download the resource. If you did not finish in class, this is homework.  Should not take very long to “polish” as we worked in class.

Warm-Up #8 was turned in as well.

I hope you have a very safe Thanksgiving and take time to reflect on the many things for which to be grateful!

Happy Friday Friends!

Test on Tuesday, November 14th!  Unit 2 Part 1!  Study a topic at a time….DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE NIGHT BEFORE!  Remember a revised PEEL paragraph can be used for the extended response portion of the test!

All blocks saw the result of the mock election we did in class yesterday….interesting!  Perhaps we have a better understanding of how Hitler gained the support of the German people!

Homework?  Did I mention we have a test on Tuesday?  Progress reports are next week…anything you need to take care of?

Thankful Thursday!

I am so thankful to be on the 6th grade journey with each of you!

All Blocks:

Today we organized notes and activities to get ready for our test on Nov. 14.  We went over the Unit 2 Part I study guide, highlighted warm-ups for test topics, and worked on the PEEL paragraph (revised copy can be used on the test).  Some classes used the time wisely and were able to complete the study guide AND play quizziz.

Test on Tuesday (November 14)…are you ready?

It is a Wednesday…but feels like a Monday!

Blocks 1 and 2:  Today we met with like minded investigators to finalize evidence to determine how the Treaty of Versailles led to WW2. You have a PEEL organizer….you may use a REVISED rough draft on the test to help you answer the extended response.  The bar has been set high on this paragraph!

Blocks 3, 4,and 5:  Today we “visited” a Propaganda Museum and examined primary documents that would have been seen during pre-WW2 Germany.  REMINDER: You have a PEEL organizer….you may use a REVISED rough draft on the test to help you answer the extended response.

IMPORTANT:  The Unit 2 test has been MOVED to Tuesday, November 14th.  You already have a study guide for the assignment.

Blocks 3, 4, and 5:  We watched the October 31 edition of CNN News in 10 and turned in WU#7.  We also had an opportunity to work on the PEEL organizer we began in the 21st century classroom yesterday.  REMEMBER:  you are able to use the revised copy for the extended response portion of our test on November 10!  We will not be working on in class-I will not be as a grade but it is part of your test preparation.

By the way…there is a test on November 10.  The material covers Scramble for Africa, Russian Revolution, Rise of Communism, and the Treaty of Versailles.  Warm-ups, class activities, discovery tickets, and of course the Teacher Notes are all perfect study tools.  Organize by topic and do one at a time!
