Another 8th Gr correction

I really messed up....I have now updated the 8th grade Ch 3 study list, so that it includes "Carolina Constitution" and "tobacco," but I omitted "Manhattan."

More Test Info for 10/1/10

I changed a couple words on the 8th grade study list below, so if you looked at them yesterday, two of the terms are gone (Manhattan & Boston), and New Netherland was added.

Also for the 8th Grade, the following are the essays that they will have to answer in paragraph form using complete sentences without using their books:

   *Why did the French have better relationships with Native Americans than did other Europeans?

   *What were some of the hardships the colonists faced in America?

   *How did the Mason-Dixon line come to be?

As for the 7th Grade, below is the essay question that they will have to answer in paragraph form using complete sentences.  They will answer this after they have turned their tests in, and they will be allowed to use their books to do so:

      *What Jewish beliefs are shared by Christians and Muslims?
