8th Grade for the Week of 3/27/2017
Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful spring break! The eighth grade will continue their study of the Middle East this week with a close look at Israel and the importance of this tiny country to the region and the world. Students will have a quiz on the countries of the Middle East and need to be able to identify them on a map. Our study of the conflicts in this area of the world will take precedence later in the week. This important study will continue for several more weeks.

6th Grade for the Week of 3/27/2017
Welcome back, sixth grade! This week in history we will begin to examine the movement for reform in the US as a result of industrialization. Students will learn who the "muckrakers" were and will create their own political cartoons about this time in American history. Students will also write paragraphs summarizing the industrialization of America, learn some new vocabulary words, and evaluate some cartoons from the time period. As always, we will have a busy week in history!
