CC Cycle 1, Week 20 Review at Home {Game Plan}

For our "Weekly Review Session" we get all the kids together and make a little party of it.  We cover all the new information for the current week, plus go over the whole timeline and add a Geography study.  We are amazed at how much better the kids do during proofing on the weeks we meet.

Here's the Game Plan for our Week 20 review session.....

Here is an activity I put together about the atmospheric layers. 
We will put together one of these to show the layers in proportion.

Extra Geography Unit - Mexico
We will color in the flag while learning about it, study where Mexico is on the map and any major rivers, oceans and land formations.
From Children's Amazing Places we will read about the underwater city of Teotihuacan and Chichen Itza.

We will play a review game using this:

Here is a cute pizza worksheet from about the circumference and area of a, I mean circle.

Fine Arts
When we do our Famous Composers study, I download these on each one so we can listen while we study.  You get 100 of their hits for $1-2.  That's a steal!!!
Here you can listen on YouTube for free.

At the end, they should be able to fill out this review sheet.
