"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: Students are learning about the 13 Colonies at the moment. We have learned about why various settlements were established, the differences and similarities between the regions, and the risks/benefits of being a colonist.
