We hope everyone enjoyed their 3-day weekend, and are ready for one last week before our October break!
Last week, we synthesized all of the information that we have been learning this unit – biomes, needs and wants, settlement patterns – and we created our own settlements within the biomes that we created using the virtual sandbox.
In math, we finished our maps that we created on a coordinate grid, and we finished writing the directions that would lead people around the map and to the hidden treasure.
In language arts, we continued to deepen our understanding of the use of descriptive language and began typing up our final products on the Chromebooks.
