Middle School Social Studies
Middle school students learn about the history of many civilizations in order to understand the economic, political and social systems that helped them evolve. They also explore the five themes of geography, location, place, human-environment interaction, movement and region. All of this helps them to be responsible members of a national and global community.
When they take American Studies I in grade 8 they learn about the social, economic, and political forces that shaped America from the colonial period through the late 1800s.
Middle school students are encouraged to participate in a variety of curricular activities inside and outside the classroom.
