Hola Amigos!

Today we explored the Latin America region and discovered more about these wonders.  Students are designing a souvenir t-shirt-we are working on that in class. This will be due at the end of class after our test or it can be completed over the weekend.

TEST on Friday, 03.01!  Latin America map was completed on Monday!  That is the test.  Block 1 and Block 5-there is NO word bank for the capitals of the countries…spelling counts!

It’s almost here…..

What a great day to make new friends!  Students moved to an activity today that was determined by the 10 point standard check we did yesterday….

Homework:  Test over Canada and Australia is tomorrow!  Also, turn in the final (pen or typed) we began in class last week.  You did a rough draft, received feedback, and polished up a final!

Need a little something for some extra credit?  Since we begin Latin America when we get back from break, let’s take a sneak-peek!  What is the capital of the following countries- Venezuela, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, and Columbia.  Print this page and have a parent sign for 2 points extra added to your test!

REMINDER GEOBEES:  Bring back a postcard from your travels to hang on our board!

Homework:  None  We will have about 10 minutes to finish today’s activity on Tuesday.

MANY band and orchestra students did not do the assignment given to them before the field trip-you have a zero until you turn it in.  Those not turned in tomorrow will get ZAP on Friday to complete.

TEST PREP:  Students were given a study guide today in class to prepare for the test.  REMEMBER:  The final paragraph (Why people live where they do in Australia?) is due on Test day (Feb 15).  This will count as your extended response!
