As our Unit 11 Test approaches (Wednesday) we are reviewing skills we have been working on for the last couple of weeks. These skills include: positive and negative integers, 3D shapes and volume, probability, and metric estimation. Here are some awesome links to practice problems for the test. HAVE FUN!!!
President Thomas Jefferson bought a huge piece of land from France, known as the Louisiana Purchase. But he needed to know what was even out there. He hired Lewis & Clark, with a bit of help from Sacajawea and a few others, to explore and observe the territory. They traveled West, clear to Astoria, Oregon! Along the way, they recorded tons of information about the people, land, and experience in their journals.
In our Oregon text, the state is divided into four regions based on climate, population, jobs, and land. The four regions are the Coast, Willamette Valley, Cascades, and Eastern Oregon. Students are using this information we learned earlier in the year and are still learning about, to examine the journey of Lewis and Clark and the early settlers of Oregon.

In class right now, we are studying the idea of “Everyday Heroes” and Biographies. Since it is also Women’s History Month, why not study Women Heroes throughout history?
Read one of the biographies and comment on what character traits you think the women had that made them a “Hero”.
