Welcome to the DMS U.S. History weebly!
We are so excited for the 2016-17 year. This website is intended to be a student resource throughout the year.
We had a wonderful visit to Glen Oaks this week to show off our American Revolution ELM projects! The 5th graders had such a fun time and the 8th graders did an AMAZING job teaching them.
We will be finishing up our Citizenship ELM this week. After that we move on to the Constitution!
Colonial Fair is done! We were all very impressed with the projects.
This week we will be exploring Colonial Life before learning about causes and reasons for the American Revolution. It's important to put ourselves in the shoes of the colonists if we truly want to understand the reason for rebellion!
Please come to tutoring if you're missing assignments. Find our tutoring times under the Teacher page on the weebly.
What a great first week! Now that we have covered reasons for exploration and colonization it is time to move on to our first colonies. We will be covering Jamestown and the types of colonies this week before launching our Colonial Faire project.
Please remember to bring your proof of residency and purchase required class supplies if you have not already done so.
Welcome back students! We are so excited for you to be in our U.S. History classes this year. We will dive into the curriculum after the first day of school starting with European exploration followed by colonization. Keep your eyes and ears open... There are already some major pieces of information coming up this week!
