This Week – December 9th – 13th


It’s hard to believe that we have only two weeks left before Christmas break. Last week in Language Arts, students wrapped up the novel “Farewell to Manzanar” and began our next unit on Science Fiction. In Social Studies, we continued with our focus on Revolutions Around the World with the Industrial Revolution.

This week in Language Arts, students will continue with Science Fiction. We will be comparing and contrasting fiction and non-fiction in the science world. When we come back after the holiday break, we will begin reading “The Giver” by Lois Lowry.

In Social Studies this week, we will be looking at the affects of child labor in America and Britain during the Industrial Revolution. Students will be looking into the laws that put a stop to the abuse of children in the workplace.
