In Social Studies , we will be studying the period of time from Christopher Columbus in 1492 up until the beginnings of our country after the Revolutionary War. It is a wide range of time with so much history that involves the area in which we live. There will be projects for the Native American groups. There will be a Project Based Learning on the American Colonies. Later in the year, we will have a French and Indian War day.
In Science this year, I will be instructing students in Animal Diversity for one semester. During the Second semester, students will switch to Ms. Kostial for instruction in Changing Surface of the Earth and a hands-on kit for Variables. Ms. Kostial's students will report to me for the Animal Diversity unit for the Second Semester of the year.
The grade for these classes will be calculated on total points.
