5 Themes of Geography Poster Project - Major Grade - Due Friday, September 6, 2019:
Students will show their knowledge of the 5 Themes of Geography (movement, region, human-environment interaction, location, place) by creating a poster with the definitions and picture representations of each theme.  Poster papers are given to students in the classroom.  Examples are hanging in the room for examples.  The picture below is displayed on the screen for reference for students when setting up their posters.
5 Themes Poster
Students have been assigned their projects through Google Classroom.  They have a read-only template shared with them as well with the guidelines for each slide.  That template is also shared here along with my own personal project for an example of expectations.  Students were told to type in their content and insert pictures first before spending time to add color, fonts, backgrounds, etc.  The content and pictures will be graded, not the extra decorations.
The Fall Benchmark for 6th Social Studies is Wednesday and Thursday, November 6-7, 2019.  Students have had access and lots of class time to complete this review that will be a grade (2 full weeks!).  It MUST be turned in by November 7th for them to receive credit for the assignment.  They have the option of completing the assignment in Google Classroom as a Google Doc or on paper with the printed version attached.  DO NOT allow your students to just copy and paste the key below into their document.  It needs to be in their words to show they are doing the work; however, I understand that not all parents can assist with answering these questions without some guidance to ensure it is along the same lines that it is taught at TIS.  Here are the responses to ensure they are studying the correct material: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xRTlsq-43dAk1X20CEnSK4i9n-u0R1FnCfvMvTHisKI/edit?usp=sharing
