Social Studies Class

Hi parents and guardians- Here are a couple of quick updates.....


We are having a virtual book fair!!  It will take place from November 20th-December 3rd. Go to https;//www.scholastic.com/bf/mohawkschool . Free shipping on orders over $25. 


Our Thanksgiving break is from Nov. 25th- Nov. 30th. Students return on Dec. 1st.


3rd grade will work on a geography review for two days then begin Chapter 6 in their workbooks. The chapters are short so I expect the next few to go fast. 


4th grade Social Studies will continue Chapter 4 where we left off on Lesson 2. We will look at the American Revolution and Ohio's role during that war. We then move onto the Northwest Territory.


 Have a wonderful break! Thanksgiving may be a bit different this year but it's always good to look at the big picture! Hopefully you can enjoy some family, a good meal, and some much needed rest and relaxation!!
