We briefly discussed conditions in Jamestown colony before taking the first vocab quiz of the year.  Students who finished before the end of the period were able to work on their colony mind maps.

We spent the first part of the period talking about early American colonies.  Later in the period, students paired up and selected colonies to complete mind maps about.

Students worked on their Geography vocab terms.  For the last part of the period, I reviewed the state geography standards and gave examples.  Students will take their geography quiz on Friday.
