Welcome to Fifth Grade Social Studies!
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 United States by annexation. Each of the regions exhibits a distinct landscape and climate, as well as a distinct 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.
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.
