Welcome to 7th grade Social Studies
During the school year we will examine and discuss the Eastern Hemisphere. Heavy concentration will be placed on geography, economics, culture, government, and history according to both the state and national standards in education. The geographic areas that will be covered include Europe, Russia, Asia, and the area known as the Middle East. The United States will also be compared so that students will gain a better understanding of not only their own country, but how similar and different the world is. We also will be examining hunter-gatherers, and early civilizations including Ancient Mesopotamia, Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, Incas, and early Asian civilizations. Check back often as I will continue to make updates as the year goes along!
