Students spent the day learning about the final Theme of Geography, which is Region. Students defined the term, and then we looked at different examples of Region on various maps. 

We also spent time preparing for our quiz. Students completed a new copy of the Planning for Our Quiz sheet, where they choose different study strategies that will assist them for Friday's quiz. 

Students can find lists of those strategies on our Team 6A Website, under "Study Skills". If any student didn't finish the front of their Planning Sheet, they should do so for homework.  

As a reminder for what to study...

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 time practicing these skills tomorrow. 

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. 

Have a  Great Evening!
