This week we finished our Road to War unit with a summative assessment. We also started our extensive studies on the War Between the States. Our main focus was the attack on Ft. Sumter and how Mr. Lincoln responded. Next week we will look at both sides plans to win the war, as well as the first battle of Bull Run.

Blocks 4 and 5 will receive instructions on Monday, and their project will be due on Wednesday, February 20.
