8th Grade U.S. History covers the colonization of the Americas, the Revolutionary War, the Constitution, the Industrial Revolution, westward expansion, the Civil War, Reconstruction and modern industrial movements to pre-WWI. One of our goals is to have students connect the historic events, presidents, and politics of the past with the events in our world today. Eight grade students will also have the opportunity to participate in Civil War Day, a close up look at the life during the Civil War.

 

7th grade World History covers major epochs, eras, events, cultures, religions and turning points that have shaped human societies. Students study the social, cultural, and technological changes that occurred in Europe, Africa, and Asia between 500 and 1789 A.D. Students are engaged in activities relating to the Middle Ages, Age of Enlightenment, Scientific Revolution, Art, Geography, and Medieval cultures around the world.
