Beginning With Maps

Mr. Helmuth here, signing on as today's guest blogger.

Today in class we managed to touch on some basic map skills, focusing mostly on Cardinal Directions. The Bell work asked us to look at a map and practice locating countries.

So far, we seem like we are understanding the directions, despite some minor setbacks with the intermediate directions, which we all know lie in between the Cardinal Directions.

As a side note, we still need to remember to follow the first rule of Social Studies:
To write down our NAMEs, the DATE, and the HOUR on the top of ALL of our assignments. This will keep Mr. Habecker in high spirits for the duration of the semester.

We will spend some time tomorrow working again with the Cardinal Directions, so come prepared to rotate yourself accordingly.

If you want extra credit, you need to read and discuss the blog with an adult.  If you've done that, find a scrap of paper.  Then, write your name - FIRST AND LAST, the date, and the hour you have social studies.  Have the adult you read the blog with sign the paper.  Turn it in tomorrow.

  1. Have Habecker and Ogle told you about Tuesday lunches in Klopfenstein's room?
