Athens and Sparta, Quizzes and Projects

posted May 11, 2015, 1:16 PM by Warren Wannamaker

Students have an action-packed week ahead in Social Studies!

First, students have been studying and preparing for their quiz on Athens and Sparta. This required them to finish their Activity List and to assemble a study tool. Using this tool, students will study for the quiz. Most classes will take it on Tuesday, though a few classes (Periods 6 and 7) have to option to take the quiz on Wednesday, since they lost some class time via PARCC. Whenever students are taking the test, they should bring a pen and their study tool to class. 

We're also working on our Greek Olympic Bid Battles. In their groups, students are choosing their roles and plotting their paragraphs concerning reasons why Athens or Sparta would be an ideal location for the Ancient Olympics. We'll work on the projects in class, and the projects should be finished by next Monday, May 18. 

Have a great week!
