"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: we are starting the new school year with studying archeology and artifacts. Students will be learning about different aspects of what makes a civilization a civilization (GRAPES), the difficulties of digging up and interpreting artifacts, and how the study of archeology can help us better understand the history of humankind.

 

8th: this year, students in 8th grade will study American history and Civics. Our first unit of study will be about Colonial America, including why people moved here from Europe, what life was like in Colonial America, and the similarities and differences between New England, Middle, and Southern colonies.
