Language Arts – This week, students will be starting a unit on the Holocaust. They will be reading about Adolf Hitler and who he was BEFORE he became the tyrant we know him to be and they will be starting a research project. Students will be researching information about different Concentration/Death Camps and will be presenting that information to the rest of the class.
Social Studies – On Monday and Tuesday, we will be wrapping up WWI with the viewing of War Horse. This will give a visual representation of the people, weapons, and trench warfare we learned about in class. Wednesday starts a new unit with vocabulary on WWII. Students will be using maps to track the movements of the German army and they will be examining the causes of WWII.
Progress Reports go home on Thursday, March 13th, 2014.
