Welcome back to school 2013/14

Welcome back to school for the new school year of 2013-2014! This is a new year and time to learn new things in social studies. I will be explaining everything to you over the new few days about what we will be doing in either 7th or 8th grade. Either way it's going to be a fun and exciting look at the history of the United States and politics. Plus it’s a World Cup year so be ready for lots of soccer references!

September 11

Today we remember the terror attacks on September 11th 2001. For this I have some activities that I want you to do. The main activity is to analyze a website from the link below. You must search the Sept. 11 website below and analyze one of the website links that the page has for you. Once you have carefully selected and analyzed a website if there is time remaining read the beginning of section 4 of chapter 32 entitled The Day That Changed The Nation and complete the guided reading worksheet, OR fill out the graphic organizer about the Effects of September 11th by using your book or the web to search for answers. All worksheets are available in the classroom. We will discuss the results in class.
