Crazy week coming up- the time change, a full moon, and Friday the 13th!! Let's put our seat belts on! :)
Monday/Tuesday: Students will complete a reading comprehension assignment using an article about European motives for exploration. We began looking at this material last week. This assignment will be a classwork grade.
Then we'll begin research on European explorers. I've created a pack of explorer "trading cards" for each student. As they research each explorer, they'll record important info on each card.
Wednesday/Thursday: Students will continue working on their European explorer "trading cards." They should have plenty of time to finish these in class if they use their class time wisely.
They'll also work on a USATestPrep assignment about the Americas.
Friday: We'll have a quiz over European explorers. They will be allowed to use their "trading cards" on the quiz so this should motivate them to take really good notes throughout the week.
Please let me know if there's any additional info or help I can give you or your student. Have a wonderful week!!
