Our first Social Studies test is Tuesday, October 25. This test will be on the Rise of Rome, and includes Rome's origins, location, the early Republic, Julius Caesar, and the achievements of the Roman Empire. Students received their study guide yesterday (10/17) and are required to complete and submit it by next Monday, October 24. Each day this week, we will be doing some review.
Today, students are making their own trivia & test questions using the notes from the beginning of the unit - the photo below is E block as they get started on their trivia questions. Ask your son or daughter what they thought was the most interesting thing they learned about in Rome - sometimes their answers even surprise me :)
