    Welcome to 5h grade Geography!  This year will be one of both learning and fun! Our ultimate goal is to have both personal and academic growth.

    Grading

    During the course of each marking period, you will be expected to complete a variety of assignments:  at-home and in-class projects, quizzes, tests and laboratory activities.  Your marking period grade will be a reflection of how well you accomplish these tasks, and the effort that you apply to complete them. Grades are available on the parent portal.

    Your grade will be based on the following criteria:

    • Tests:  25%
    • Quizzes and Lab Reports:  20%
    • Projects:  20%
    • Homework:  20%
    • Notebook Organization:  15%
