Hello 5th Graders and Parents
Welcome back to those students I had last year in 4th grade and to new students that I have had the privilege of meeting recently . This year in Social Studies we will study the Western Hemisphere. That covers a lot of territory; all of North and South America! I can't wait for you to learn about Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, the incredible river system of the Amazon Rainforest, and the ancient civilizations of the Incas, Mayas, Aztecs, and the Mississippian mound building culture. Oh the cultures we'll discover!
