Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies!
This year we will work together to develop our historical thinking skills. We will analyze primary sources, examine secondary sources, and explore artifacts and events in order to draw conclusions and form opinions. We will be looking closely at the formation of the United States, how our government works both nationally and locally, as well as learning about civic responsibilities.
Students are currently learning about the the Preamble of the Constitution and the specific jobs of the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branches.
Be sure to visit the Washington D.C. web page for more info on our 2019 trip. Or contact me directly with any questions!
