"History cannot give us a program for the future, but it can give us a fuller understanding of ourselves, and our common humanity,  so that we can better face the future"

- Robert Penn Warren

 


What we are up to in Social Studies:

7th: Congrats to the Medes in 7F and the Persians in 7M, they won the Empires games in their respective classes! Now that we are done studying Mesopotamia, we will be moving on to Ancient Egypt. Students will learn about the geography of Egypt and the Nile River Valley and how this landscape will greatly effect the daily lives of the Ancient Egyptians. We will also learn about their religion, achievements, and influences on our culture today.

 

8th: our studies of American history have concluded and we are now learning about Civics. We have already learned about different forms of government and how these different forms are similar and different to the democracy we practice in the United States. Next, we will study the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. New books have been distributed. They are for the students to keep, so they are allowed and encouraged to highlight and underline material. The book is also available in Kindle format.
