This week is a short week due to Activity Day on Thursday and No School on Friday.
All students will be working on redrawing the borders of Africa this week for all lessons. They will be using information learned in Social Studies in order to make the map of Africa more logical than it currently is. After that, they will then write a persuasive essay explaining why their map is better than the current political map. Since this unit is an interdisciplinary unit with English, the essay writing will take place in both classes so the students have more time to write, edit and revise which will hopefully give them plenty of time to craft a great essay.
Lesson 1 – Redrawing Africa. Students will be given a blank map and will have to reorganize Africa in a more logical way.
Lesson 2 (A, C & F only) – Redrawing Africa. Students will be given a blank map and will have to reorganize Africa in a more logical way.
Lesson 3 – There is no lesson 3 due to activity day Thursday or no classes on Friday.
If you are traveling over this long weekend, I hope you have a wonderful time and travel safely!
