Our class time will be divided between Social Studies and math this week. Today, in Social Studies, we are learning about the oil embargo and gas shortage in the 1970s using our USA Studies Weekly newspaper and our Studies Weekly online tool. We also worked towards completing the map that highlights the states our presidents were born in. Students have to give the map a title, include a compass rose, and make a very detailed map key.
In math we will be focusing on review by working on Countdown to STAAR and Think Through Math.
