American History 8
Chapter 2 Test
The Chapter 2 Test will take place in class on Wednesday, September 28, 2016.  The test will cover mainly the content from the early North American colonization period and some key points from Chapter 1 when we learned about the early Native American people and civilizations.  On Thursday, September 22, the class received a review sheet of important dates, places, and people, as well as main-idea questions to help focus studying efforts.  Students may also take an online practice test at:

AH8 - Colonial Region Presentation
After the students completed and reviewed the Chapter 2 Test, the class conversation switched to the original 13 British colonies that would become the United States.  The students randomly selected one of the regions (New England, Middle, Southern).  From there, the students will be in groups and will have the responsibility of researching and presenting information on their particular colonial region.  The presentation description is in the attached file.  No set date has been made for when the group presentations will take place.
