Social studies classes are wrapping up their first regional study of Europe. Students began the unit by exploring Europe's physical features, climate and political divisions. To wrap up our map portion of the unit students completed two intensive summative maps and took an assessment. I was extremely impressed and pleased with the quality or work the students turned in for a grade. Most recently we have begun our look at the human characteristics of Europe. We were able to skim the surface of the major historical periods to give students a glimpse at the contributions and impact European history still has on the world today. This week and next week students will compare and contrast the major economic and government types using current European countries.
