WOW- What a great week!

You did an awesome job dealing with the heat and flowing through your schedule.

I will use this site to remind you of important dates, up and coming project deadlines, and quizzes/ tests.

Please use your planner to record your daily work at the start of class.

Continue to review your continents and oceans for the quiz on Tuesday. Remember that I will grade on location, spelling, and capitalization.

We started to learn how to locate exact locations on our globe using latitude and longitude. With this skill, we can find an exact address anywhere in the world.

We started our globe project next. We will work in groups of three.

It is important that you work as a team and support each other as you find the exact locations of our continents and begin to plot our world.
