ThursdayThis week in social studies we learned more about each of the seven continents. Students worked in groups of 2-3 to research one of the seven continents. The following day, groups used their findings from their research to create a poster on the continent they were assigned.
Next week we will review what we have learned in Unit 4 and take our Unit 4 Assessment on Thursday.
Today in social studies, students took a closer look at the history of our planet. As we examined a NOVA documentary on the significance of the earth's core, students learned more about the importance of Earth's magnetic field and its impact on life.
Tomorrow we will begin to discuss certain regions of the earth more in depth and will be beginning a group project on the continents.
