I think this was the best year ever for War Lords of Japan. Students studied well, were prepared, and attacked early. Consequently we had some great toe-to-to battles where student knowledge flourished. I am so proud of the children for showing clever strategies and working so well together.
Basically our unit on Asia is coming to an end. This next week we will spend two days going over a study guide for a test about China and Japan. Then we’ll play a review game on Wednesday, and finally we’ll have the test on Thursday.
After such a rousing end to our Asia unit, the end of the year will find us studying Latin American geography, and the history of the Mayas, Aztecs and Incas. It’s amazing how quickly the next term will pass and students will then moving on to 7th grade.
Don’t forget, we will be at Outdoor School from May 9th through the 11th. We held a jog-a-thon last Friday where students raised money for their Outdoor School experience. It was actually a good day to do it since it was overcast, so students didn’t get overheated.
Below are pictures of the winning teams in each block, and some pictures of students running the jog-a-thon.
