Weekly Plan – October 30th to November 4th

Posted by on October 29, 2017

5th Grade


Students will be continuing their project on the circumnavigation of Ferdinand Magellan.


Monday – Ferdinand Magellan – Map Preparation

Wednesday – Ferdinand Magellan – Timeline Draft

Thursday – Ferdinand Magellan – Project Day

Friday – Ferdinand Magellan – Project Day


Students will be working on their project on Ferdinand Magellan’s circumnavigation of the world over the next few weeks.  They will receive some special materials/instructions on Monday and will then be placed in their random pairs.




6th Grade


This week the 6th graders will begin working on their timelines on despotism in England.


Monday – Despotism in England – Reading Review

Wednesday – Despotism in England – Timelining Instructions

Thursday – Despotism in England – Project Day

Friday – Despotism in England – Project Day


Students have already read the materials and created short summaries of the question answers on the instruction page.  We will review these on Monday and then begin work on their timeline project.  The final version will be due on Wednesday of next week.


7th Grade


This week students will conclude working on their Egyptian building projects.


Monday – Egyptian Buildings – Project Work Day

Tuesday – Halloween – No Class

Wednesday – Egyptian Buildings – Project Work Day

Friday – Egyptian Buildings – Project Work Day


As students have been working very well on their projects (and due to some absences last week) they will have a few extra days to complete them.  I will accept the final versions on Monday of next week if students want to have any extra time to work on them.  I’ve decided not to actually have students create the timeline as they’ve been doing such a good job so far.


8th Grade


Monday – Nazi Party policies – Student Answer Review

Tuesday – Halloween – No Class

Wednesday – Nazi Party policies – Essay Planning

Friday – Nazi Party policies – Essay Planning


Students will continue working on their essays on the rise/policies of Nazi Germany.  The essay question will be:


“I what ways did the Nazi Party implement the key ideas of Fascism in Germany between 1933 and 1939?”


This essay requires students to read a large amount of material.  The key is to separate it into two key areas – those policies which brought in those considered to be German and those which excluded those considered to be outsiders.  I’ll post more details once we’ve gone through the planning lessons on Wednesday and Friday.
