Week of May 20th, 2007

20 05 2007

Social Studies – This week we will be looking at some of the larger Revolutionary War events such as Valley Forge, Bunker Hill, Yorktown, and Battle at Sea (and others).  Students will each be assigned a battle, given 1 1/2 days to research, and then present.  On Friday, we will have a short multiple choice quiz on the battles presented by all class members. 

Here is the copy of the information students need to look up on each battle.

Math – From now until the end of the school year, we are going to complete, as a class, the final test from the basic math skills book.  We will do about 8 problems per day.  If we finish early, class will play a game such as blackjack or cribbage (something involving math and problem solving). 

Here is a copy of the final test we’ll be working on.

Social Skills – Students are working on electronic portfolios of their 21st Century Skills.  Below are links to a few pieces of student work – keep an eye on them, as they are just beginning the process and will be updating like mad for the next 2 weeks.  Final project presentation will be June 5th.
