Fifth graders are scheduled to take a history quiz covering Chapters 4, 5 and 6, plus vocabulary, on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. Students should study the answers to the assigned homework questions at the end of those chapters, as well as their vocabulary lists. We will also review in class for the quiz on Monday and Tuesday.
