Welcome to Fifth Grade Social Studies! We have a great year planned. We will start out in the United States, but will soon begin traveling to many exciting places around the world.
Our first unit will be Geography of the United States. We will divide the U.S. into eight regions and two states that are bound to the U.S. by annexation. Each of the regions exhibits a distinct landscape, climate, history and culture.
We will take quizzes on the states and capitals of each region.
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, on my web page calendar, and on the 5th grade calendar. All students are also asked to write the quizzes and tests in their assignment books.
