"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...
7th grade- We have concluded our studies on Early Man and now we are focusing on Mesopotamia and the early civilizations that once existed in the Fertile Crescent. Students will be working together and competing with each other to move from a tribe to a mighty empire!
8th Grade- We are now learning about the Declaraiton of Independence, including why it was created, what does it state, and the debates surrounding its ratification. We will then begin to learn about the war itself and how the colonies won their freedom.
