Students spent today reviewing for our quiz. 

We finished our review of the Five Themes of Geography, and how to apply them to different situations and examples. This activity is very very similar to one of the sections on our quiz, so this review was designed to prepare students for that section of the quiz. 

We also completed a brief review of physical features, where students identified features based on pictures and descriptions of those features. 

Speaking of our quiz, students should be studying for it. Students should be using the strategies that they chose in class. 

Tomorrow, students should bring a pen, their Planning For Our Quiz Sheet (which we filled out on Monday), and at least one "Study Artifact" that proves that they've utilized the study strategies that they selected. 

And to reiterate the things that students should be studying:

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). 

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, as well as the study guide chart that we put together in class. 

If any students have last-minute questions or concerns, they should see Mr. Wannamaker in Room 220 before school tomorrow!

Have a  Great Evening!
