We spent the first part of the period reviewing the Industrial Revolution test.  Students then presented their monument projects for the Nationalist Revolutions unit.  We spent the last part of the period reviewing for Friday’s quiz.  Students will also need to bring their Nationalist Revolutions packets to turn in Friday.

Students got back their unit 4 DBQs after looking at some samples, and then took the unit 5 DBQ.

The unit 5 objective test will be on Friday.  Be sure to bring #2 pencils and high quality erasers (just in case).  Don’t forget to take advantage of the review bank at The Testing Center.

Happy Kansas Day everyone!
