Social Studies and Hierarchies

It is my week to teach Social Studies and we are working through the Civil War.  Today our reading was about boy soldiers, so I gave my classes a list of 29 items that a Civil War Soldier would usually have with him.  I asked the tables to come to an agreement of the 5 items that would be most important to his survival.  Next, I asked them to go to their Google Social Studies classroom and open the Google Doc I had shared with them.  Each person could order the items as they saw fit, but they needed to justify their choice.

Math today was a short quiz using www.quizizz.com to review our work with graphic organizers and geometry.  My math will be much shorter this week, as I have to divide my time between the two subjects.
