Explorers Unit of Study

This week in social studies we will begin our unit of study on explorers.  I will be doing something a little different with the students.  This will be a blended learning unit.  Blended learning is when a student learns at least in part through delivery of content and instruction via digital and online media with some element of student control over time, place, path, or pace.  I will provide students with a list of assignments they must complete.  Some of these assignments will be videos that I have created to delivery the content to the students.  Other assignments will be activities to enhance the instruction.  Students will be able to complete these activities at their own pace.  This week students will learn about Leif Eriksson, Christopher Columbus, and Ferdinand Magellan.   Please ask your child to share this assignment with this week!  It will be in their social studies Google Classroom.
