"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...

7th: We are learning about archeology, why it is important and what can be learned by studying artifacts. Soon the students will be partaking in the Big Dig project, more information to follow.


 

8th: We are currently learning about the events that led to the American Revolution. Students have learned about taxes and why colonists were angry about them, events such as the Boston Massacre, and people such as John Adams and his cousin Sam. We will soon study the Boston Tea Party and the first battles of the war itself.
