Vocabulary assignment!!! (P. 6-7)
1. Locate in the margins the five KEY CONCEPT words.
2. Find the definition of the word, but summarize its meaning in your own words. Do NOT copy the definition from the book.
3. Draw a diagram, word map, or other graphic organizer that shows how the word relates to something you already know.
4. Write a sentence that explains how that word relates to chapter one’s theme (how the first Americans adapted to the environment).
What wasn’t finished was assigned as homework. Due tomorrow.
We discussed the map on p. 15 of the book, looking at things like the title, legend, compass rose, cardinal and intermediate directions. I then handed out a version of the map and in their groups they set about collecting information from ten mini map assignments posted around the room. We will finish this activity tomorrow.
