This week USI will start explorers. We will learn why Portugal and West Africa are important to United States history and the motivations, obstacles and accomplishments of the explorers.
This week we started Native Americans and Next week will finish with them and test on Thursday the 22nd. We will then start on explorers.
Reminder we have homework every Monday that is due on Friday unless it is a shortened week.
We have a Geography test on Thursday and no homework as it is a short week.
There will be no test on Friday-we are moving it to next Thursday. Also this Saturday (September 3rd) is my first Serendipitous Saturday trip to the Stonewall Jackson Shrine near Thornburg. I will be there at 10:00 on Saturday morning and if you come there (it will take about 20 minutes to see the exhibit) your child gets a quiz grade of a 100 for extra credit. There i s no penalty if they do not come and if you come at a different time and send me pictures and they can tell me something they learned they can also get credit.
If you have any questions feel free to email me at email@example.com
Homework is due on Friday and your first quiz is on Friday as well.
Homework for this week is to get all of your supplies for this class.
