Monday, September 22: Students began by taking the first counties quiz. They may take this as many times as they would like up until October 3rd to get 100%. We will take it in each class period up until that point. Students then participated in an archaeology activity, having to reassemble 'primary source' artifacts and try to understand them. Next we discussed what is in a name? Why are Native Americans called that? What other names do they go by? Lastly, we began to go over the prehistoric groups of people who lived in Utah. Using the Chapter 3 PowerPoint, we discussed the Paleo and Archaic Indians and completed that section of the chart on p. 28 of the workbook.
In Class: p. 28 first two groups
Homework: make sure Geology Unit work in workbook is complete
(includes study guide, p. 21, p. 22, and 6 starters)
Wednesday, September 24: Class once again began with a counties quiz. If a student has already achieved 100% they do not need to take the quiz again. After the quiz, we resumed the PowerPoint on the prehistoric groups of Utah. We discussed the Anasazi and Fremont tribes while completing the chart on p. 28. Together we placed these groups onto the timeline on p. 27 of the workbook, using p. 40-41 of the textbook as a guide. Lastly, we watched a couple of video clips about the atlatl and figured out how it worked.
Due: Workbook (p. 19 study guide attached, p. 21, p. 22, 6 Starters)
In class: finished p. 28 in workbook
Friday, September 26: First thing was another counties quiz for those who have not reached 100%. As students finish, they may work on p. 30 of the workbook. Then, as a class, we read p. 42-43, 45-46 in the textbook and completed a Read, Stop, Write (see documents page if absent). Next we compared and contrasted the Prehistoric Native American groups. Lastly, the class was introduced the the Unit Project Menu on p. 41 of the workbook. Students are to choose one project and work on it at home. The project will be due on November 11th.
In Class: One Read Stop Write
