5th Grade Social Studies
 Westward Expansion-The classes have been discussing the expansion of the US. We have discussed the Trail of Tears from both the side of the Cherokees , as well as the Americans. We have discovered that there are many considerations when making a decision. We are wrapping up this unit with Industrial Revolution, and of course are enjoying that chart topper hit  "The Erie Canal " song.

We will be beginning our study of the Civil War. This unit will be Project -based,most of the work will be completed in class. We will be researching, creating timelines and discusiing the effects of the war.
