We are currently studying the Eastern Woodland, Great Plains and the Southwestern Indians. The attached study guide gives you the minimal information that your child needs to know for the unit test.
For extra credit your child may create a project that shows an aspect of the American Indians that we have or will study during this unit.
Here are some but not limited to suggestion:
- A puppet that shows the clothing, the hair styles and head dresses that a tribal member would wear.
- A teepee, adobe home, wigwam or long house.
- A US relief map of the regions where the different Indians lived.
- They may create shoe box habitats that shows: the geographical area, how they hunt and gather food, the type of transportation they used.
The project is DUE: January ____31st____________.
- Please call if you have any questions. Our school number is 804 596-2396.
I hope you have all checked out our JigSaw Journals. The students have learned how to create a journal of their activities that you can assess on your phone. If you have not signed up to receive notifications of when your child posts an activity, let me know.
We have finished our map skills of the continents and oceans. Our next area of focus is on the US land features. Please keep reviewing the study guide that is in the back of your student’s 3 ringed binder.
In math we are continuing to review graphing, adding two digit addition and subtraction without regrouping, skip counting, and will start probability next week. Please continue to review the simple addition ad subtraction facts.
Just want to let you know that we will be having a pumpkin activity at the end of the day on Thursday, October 29th. I could really use 4 or 5 sets of extra hands if you are interested.
Report cards will be going home on October 22nd.
Parent/Teacher conferences night will be Thursday, October 29th 4:30-6:45. It will also be November 3rd from 9:00 -11:45
