May 22nd – Test on North America

May 26th and 29th – Summary test. This is a summary of what we have learned all year. Students will be given a world map to work on and fill in all that they can without any outside helps. STudents will begin the test at my house on Tuesday May 26th, fill in what they can…then continue on Friday the 29th (and yes, I know this gives them time to study what they couldn’t remember on Tuesday…I’m good with that as they are studying and learning more.) On Friday they can work until they are happy with what they have completed…meaning they can go through the next class and later if they need.

Homework Due October 24th.

We will be having our test on Africa this Friday. Also country reports are due. You may do a poster or a paper, More details below.

Homework Due October 17.

We will be wrapping up Africa, our final test for Africa will be October 24th. For this test you won’t need to know just countries, but the other geographical features we have gone over as well. Knowing capitals will count as extra credit.

You were to pick a country to do a country report on earlier this month. We will be sharing those reports on October 24th. The easiest was to do the reports is to make me a poster on one of the countries. I know some of the kids like doing the large exhibit boards, and they are welcome to, but that is not mandatory. Some of the younger kids have asked if they could do a book, taking several construction paper pages and sewing them together and making a book about their country. That is fine as well. The point is to choose one country and go more in depth.

Homework Due Oct. 10 Study for quiz on countries in Africa.

Homework Due Oct. 3 Review what we have learned so far. Begin research on the country you have selected to do your report on.

Homework Due Sept. 26

Review what you have learned so far, and continue to review continents, seas etc.

Remember you will be doing a country report so choose a country in Africa you would like to know more about.

Homework Due Sept. 19. In class we are going to be working on the African continent. Review what we have learned so far, I would prefer you not get to ahead of us, but really work on knowing what we have done so far. Review the information on the whole world, seas, continents etc. It’s good to have an atlas to work from…if you have one bring it to class. You can also use the internet to do additional research and to help you find anything you are having trouble with.

Our first Country project will be on a country in Africa. Now would be a good time to start deciding on which country you want to study in more depth. If you have done a country report before on an African nation, pick a different one.

I’m waiting one more week to hand out the books for this class, so that I can get all of the orders in. Check with your parents that they have ordered and paid for your book so you can get it next week.
