This week, your child will be wrapping up their group work on their dioramas. Class time will be spent finishing these pieces of work! Students will also be given the chance to organize and practice for their group presentation that will take place this Friday, October 16th! The six tribes the students are researching are the Inuit (Artic), Pawnee (Plains), Hopi (Southwest), Nez Perce (Plateau), Kwakiutl (Northwest), Seminole (Southeast).
The Unit 1 vocabulary list can be found under the "Content" tab. Please remind your child to study and become familiar with these terms. They will be popping up in their research and it is important that they understand the meanings of these words!
