We have officially passed the 30th day of school and we are smooth sailing at this point. Here are a few dates and updates for the next couple weeks.
Chapter 2 Early Hominids - Test Friday, October 19
The classes have been studying early groups of humans. They have identified difference capabilities and we've discussed how these qualities have impacted their survival.
This Friday (10/19) students will be taking their Chapter 2 test. They have notes to study from (check blue folder) and should pay attention to the following: the scientific name and nickname of each group of hominids, information about where and when your hominid lived and an understanding of the hominids' important capabilities.
We have a busy week next week. I hope every enjoys the long weekend!
