It is the year 1500, and we are in Florence, Italy. What do rats, bulls, and flying machines have to do with the Renaissance and Reformation? The fifth grade will answer these questions and meet Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo as we visit this incredible time in history.
There will be a chapter test at the conclusion of the unit, along with several graded class activities.
The students will have a packet which we will complete in class. The information in this packet can be used as a study guide for the test at the end of the unit.
Homework for this unit: Students should make flashcards for all highlighted information as as we complete a chapter and study these cards a few minutes each day.
All quizzes and tests will be posted on the 5th grade calendar outside the classrooms, on the board in my social studies classroom, and on my web page calendar. All students are also asked to write the quizzes and tests in their assignment books.
