This week in Social Studies

March 16, 2020

This week in Social Studies will look very different. I sent home a page protector with the map of the 50 states (blank and labeled) for your child to practice at home. I also sent home their chapter 5 study guide for The Lost Colony of Roanoke. They need to read closely in Chapter 5 and highlight the answers in their books. 
Below I'm including the study guide, fifty states map, and the text from Chapter 5 in case your child forgot their book at school.

This week in Social Studies, the students will compare and contrast the homes of different Native American tribes using Chapter 2 from our Across the Ocean book. The study guide will prepare them to compare and contrast two different homes for their quiz. This week's quiz will be a little different because they will not be answering questions. They will have to tell similarities and differences of any two given Native American homes.

The map we are working on is about the location of Continents, Meridians, and Hemispheres. The links are below so you can practice with your child.
