History and Geography
So last week we had a short geography quiz on the provinces territories of Canada. Students had to identify the provinces and territories, as well as note (but not locate) the capital cities of each province. They also had to spell everything correctly (although I did not take off a point if students added a "u" to Iqaluit, since this word does not conform to the spelling rule the students have learned.
The results were not impressive, despite having had a week to study, having gone over the content in class, and having had a map in their duotang for 3 months.
So, this week we will be reviewing how to study, and the test will be given again, until each child masters the content.
Have a good week,
