"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 will begin the school year with the study of archeology. Students will learn how archeologists find and unearth artifacts, interpret them, and determine the age of objects. We will soon begin the Big Dig project, check back for more details! There are links below that include fun archeology activities! 



8th Grade- Students will begin the year by learning about the thirteen colonies, why people left their homes to move to North America, what life was like here, and how the colonies differed. These lessons will set the stage for our studies on the American Revolution.
