Social Studies- We will begin our unit on Ancient China. The focus will be on the geography and dynasties that ruled China.
Religion -In class we will be reading and discussing the importance of the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes.
Reading/Literature-We will be reading the story titled Brian’s Song. Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers are teammates on the mid-1960s Chicago Bears. At a time when professional football still bears a certain amount of race-based segregation, the growing friendship between the white Piccolo and the black Sayers, as well as their wives, Joy and Linda, becomes a symbol of harmony during the civil rights era. That bond grows stronger still when Piccolo receives some shattering and unexpected news.
Vocabulary- The work will center around units eight/nine..Students will learn correct spelling, definition and usage of assigned vocabulary words.
