Happy New Year!

A little late, but better late than never, right?  

We have about three weeks remaining in our study of ancient Egypt.  After that, we move onto Greece (and with that comes our next major project)!

It can be tough to re-focus after a two-week break, but second quarter grades are closing soon, so don't take your eye of your studies!  This is actually a great time to buckle down, put some good grades in the book and finish the second quarter on a strong note.

The third and fourth quarters also get a bit more difficult, so this is no time to be taking it easy when it comes to your studies.  Seventh grade teachers will expect a lot more work from you right off the bat, so we need to get you ready for a heavier workload between now and the end of the year.

I've added a Quizlet page to my website so that you can practice vocabulary and ideas.  I only have the terms from this section, but I think that's a good start, since this section has quite a few terms (eleven).  Test yourself when you get a chance - practice makes perfect!
