Social Studies Test and Practice Opportunities

We have had all kinds of fun learning about events leading to the American Revolution. We will be taking our unit 5 vocabulary quiz on Wednesday, March 22 and our unit test on Friday, March 24. On Tuesday, students should be bringing home a study guide to help them review for the test. I have also set up a fun review on Quizzizz as another way for students to practice. To access it, students should follow these instructions:

Open join.quizizz.com

All of the test questions are represented on the Quizzizz activity, so it is a great opportunity for students to practice.
