We will have a test on Economics early this week. Please remind students to study their notes.
Social Studies binders start over for the third nine weeks. A new Table of Contents will be posted soon. Please make sure your student has all the notebook pages completed. Students were encouraged to keep their materials from the first semester, as they will be included in the final exam. Also, students will have a quiz over government systems possibly as early as this Friday the 16th.
The final semester exam for Social Studies will be administered next Wednesday the 17th. The exam is cumulative so students need to study their notes from both the 1st and 2nd 9-weeks.
We will have a vocabulary quiz for terms relating to the Cold War on Wednesday the 10th. Students have the list of terms to study.
Social Studies notebooks have started over for the 2nd 9-weeks. Please check students’ notebooks and make sure they are organized. We currently have only 5 pages for the 2nd quarter.
Please routinely check the Infinite Campus Parent Portal link for current grades and assignments for each class. If you do not have your log in information, contact Media Specialist Andrea Clinkscales at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please make sure that your student has a 3-ring binder that is used specifically for Social Studies class. We give the students a lot of documents, maps, notes, etc. that they are responsible for keeping up with. We do not use a textbook as a primary instructional tool, so a well organized notebook is critical to success.
In 6th grade we will study the geography, culture, economies and governments of Europe, Latin America, Canada, and Australia. Please check out the Georgia Performance Standards posted under the “Class Documents” tab for specific details on the course of study.
