What are we studying this quarter?
This quarter we will start the year off with some basic geography skills. Students will learn concepts like Latitude and Longitude, compass rose, cardinal and intermediate directions, and various parts of a map.
After mastering our geography and map skills, we will learn about the first colonies of Roanoke and Jamestown. Students will also learn about the differences between the three colony regions that made up the United States before the Revolutionary War.
To end the quarter, students will learn about the causes leading up to the American Revolution. They will be expected to know the different acts and taxes that spurred the colonists on towards war, as well as the document that declared our independence once and for all: The Declaration of Independence!
