  • During the Boston Massacre, five colonists were killed and three others were hurt.
  • The Boston Tea Party happened late one night, on December 17, 1773. A group of colonists broke into three ships filled with tea. They threw over 900,00 pounds of tea into the harbor.
  • The first two battles of the American Revolution took place in the towns of Lexington and Concord. 
  • The Battle of Saratoga took place on September 19, 1777. The British general had a plan to use the Hudson River to split up the American troops. 
  • The Battle of Yorktown was the last battle of the American Revolution. It ended with the British surrendering in October 1781.
  • Crispus Attucks was a colonist who was killed during the Boston Massacre.

  • John Hancock was the first one to sign the Declaration of Independence. 

 

  • Benjamin Franklin served on the Committee to write the Declaration of Independence. (famous for his experiment in 1752 with a kite, key, and storm proved that lightning and tiny electric sparks were the same thing.)

 

  • Thomas Jefferson is best remembered for writing the Declaration of Independence.

 

  • Patrick Henry was a powerful speaker and took a stand against the British government. He ended his famous speech by saying “I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”

 

  • John Adams was elected second president of the United States. He was a lawyer and a strong supporter of the American Revolution.

 

  • Paul Revere worked as a messenger delivering messages, news, and documents for several important government committees and the Continental Congress. (famous for his midnight ride “The British are coming!”

 

  • Benedict Arnold became one of the most famous traitors in U.S. history after he switched sides and fought for the British. 

Science Habitat Notes:

  • A habitat is a natural home or environment where an animal lives.
  • A habitat must provide three basic needs for any animal to survive: food, water, and shelter.
  • A lot of animals have adapted over the years so their fur, markings, shape, or coloring helps them blend into their environment. This is a form of camouflage.
  • Tundra ecosystems are very cold, treeless habitats found at the top of very tall mountains and in the Arctic regions. 
  • In the Wetlands there is so much water that it floods the land. These ecosystems are found by lakes, rivers, and near the ocean. 
  • Wetland is simply land that is wet most of the time. 
  • The Woodlands are loaded with tons of plants and trees.
  • The Grasslands  grow on every continent, except Antarctica. This ecosystem has many names like prairies, savannas, and rangelands. 
  • The Savannah is a rolling grassland with a few scattered trees and shrubs. Almost half of Africa is covered with this ecosystem. 
  • Tropical rainforests are close to the equator making them hot, humid, and wet all year. 
  • A desert is an area that is extremely dry with very little rainfall. 
  • The polar region, sometimes called the Arctic, are the coldest places on Earth! Bitter cold temperatures and long winters that never end make this ecosystem the most difficult place to live. 
  • Mountain Regions have the biggest ranges in temperature and climate depending on the season and elevation. Many animals live at the bottom, or base of this habitat. 
  • Oceans are the largest animal habitats on Earth! They cover 70% of the Earth’s surface.

To get to google classroom, your child will be given a gmail account. In Google Classroom I will assign daily ReadWorks and Mathletics assignments. The Mathletics app can be downloaded to a device or you can log onto the website from a computer. The username and password are attached to their take home folder and they are familiar with how to log on. They will be assigned work and I will see their scores when done. I will assign Readworks through google classroom as well. 

To use The ReadWorks instructions are below:

How to get students to their assignments

  1. Have students go to www.readworks.org/student
  2. Students enter class code ADGJ7D
  3. Tell your students that their default password is 1234

Note: Students can change their passwords when they log in, and you can change student passwords on this page.

On ReadWorks, you will be assigned readings and questions to answer. I will be notified of which students complete the assignments and the scores after completing the questions.If you have any questions, feel free to message me on Option C. I will be checking it frequently.
