Preparing for a Test

What to do:

 

1. In your composition notebook, study the "Note Sheets" that we fill out in class. You need to study the chart at the top AND the 3 questions at the bottom.

2. Study the pages in your social studies book that contain the Skill Lesson.

3. Study your vocabulary cards. They are made to use as flashcards.

You don't have to wait to study for the test the day before we take it.  In fact, I encourage you to study as we go through the chapter.  This will make it MUCH easier on you!
