Students today began to wrap up our unit on Geography and Culture. We spent a majority of the day working on activities that showed the difference between life during the Old Stone Age and the New Stone Age. 

We also briefly discussed our upcoming quiz. It is scheduled for this Friday (October 12) and will assess students on their knowledge of a few topics. 

First, students should know and be able to apply their knowledge of the Five Themes of Geography (which they can find on Page 5 in their notebook). We'll spend some time tomorrow focused on the last theme, Region. 

Second, students should know their Physical Features. We have the physical feature terms and definitions on flashcards on Page 19 in our notebooks. We also have those definitions in our Place Presentation (which students can still access in the Handouts Section of this website). We also have review activities for the physical features on this Quia Review page that Mrs. Ackerman created. 

Lastly, students should review their notes on the New Stone Age. These notes include the important discoveries of the New Stone Age, and the ways that life changed for people in the New Stone Age. Students should use pages 23 and 24 in their notebooks for help with this topic. We'll also put together a bit of a study guide for this info tomorrow, as well. 

We'll spend time this week in class preparing for our quiz. Students should spend time at home studying, as well. 

Have a great evening!
