This year we will study countries of the Western Hemisphere. Our focus will be on Europe, Latin America and Canada.
*EVERY WEDNESDAY students will give a current event report. You can access the requirements on the LINKS page.
ALL students should be using the link on the LINKS tab to practice the countries of Europe at least twice a week for just a few minutes each time. There will be a test over these at the end of the European Unit.
This week our focus is on the feudal system, especially pertaining to knights. We will read the story of King Arthur, watch The Sword in the Stone and add pages to our notebooks about the stages of becoming a knight. We will talk about the knight's coat of arms and each student will design one of their own.
