This week in social studies, we will start the year with the creation of a world map. Since geography and a knowledge of the world will play a key role in success in social studies this year, we would like students to have a solid understanding of where places are located. This map will be started in class and finished at home. This map will be due at the start of the block after the assignment is given (see below).
At the end of the week, students will be introduced to the concept of interactive reading – beginning with the practice of text highlighting. Interactive reading is an important skill that will be taught and practiced regularly throughout the year in social studies.
Assignments for this Week
Map of the World – due Thursday (A&B), and Friday (D, F, & G)
