Hands-on laboratory investigations will constitute a major portion of the learning experience.  Appropriate use of metric measuring devices and mathematical manipulations are also major curriculum components.

    Social Studies 7/8                                                                     60 hours             $350.00

    The seventh grade curriculum, World History:  The Early Ages is a study of world civilizations from the beginning of time through the Renaissance.  It incorporates history, religion, geography, and governments through a cultural and historical perspective.  Each unit's lessons will incorporate ideas for differentiated instruction, integrating technology, student objectives, special reading strategies, and map skills.  The eighth grade curriculum, Civics, is the study of government.  It emphasizes

    the foundations and structures of the United States governmental system and the political processes and public policy that impact on that system.  Also, it provides a strong preparation for effective citizenship including recognition of civil law, rights and responsibilities.
