Glad you asked ...I'll tell you! As you know, today you are taking the Quarter 1 pre-test. This test DOES NOT count, but will provide a baseline score for you so we can see how much you learn over the course of this quarter.
After you finish the test, please do the following
- finish your essay from Wednesday (If you haven't already)
- on a piece of scrap paper write down the 7 continents of the world and the 5 oceans
- use the map below and name the 13 ORIGINAL colonies and then tell me which states make up the NEW ENGLAND, MIDDLE and SOUTHERN colonies!
- Find a US timeline and pick ONE event that took place BEFORE 1866 that you're interested in learning more about and WHY!
Once everyone has finished the test, we will "grade" it and also fill in the scores on our PMA sheets (that are in our data folder ...remember!) and then go over the answers to the map activity and use this as a fantastically planned way to introduce US History :)
Simple enough right? Let's do this!
