Junior High Friday Letter August 12

Teacher: Mrs. Croniser

Sixth Grade Social Studies
Sixth grade is our students’ first chance to be introduced to the world’s history and geography. The study of the development of the cultures of Egypt, Greece, Rome, and the Far East will help understand students how those cultures’ contributions have affected our modern world. Students will study the major wars, their causes and effects. Students will use electronic and print resources to find out more on new topics. Along with study of history, students will work to understand the geography of the places they study and how that affected development and movement of people. Christian respect for the diversity of all people, economic development, and artistic contributions of various cultures will be highlighted. Field trips, hands on learning, electronic research, and the recording of current events will all be used so that children can have a better understanding of world history.

Seventh Grade Social Studies
Seventh grade is the time to focus on Texas. Our classes will study the political, economic, and cultural development of our great state. We will study geography to help students understand how Texas’s vast resources have helped to make the state vital to the rest of the country. Notable individuals who have contributed to the government of Texas will be analyzed to understand how the rich political history of the state is displayed in today’s politics. Field trips, hands on learning, electronic research, and the recording of current events will all be used so that children can have a better understanding of world history.

Eighth Grade Social Studies
Eighth graders will study American History, from the revolution to the nineteenth century. Students will study social, economic, and poltical ideals of the United States, and explore the ways in which the country lives up to the dreams of its founders. The major documents in the U.S. history, major wars of our country, and economic events that shaped it will be covered. Field trips, hands on learning, electronic research, and the recording of current events will all be used so that children can have a better understanding of world history.
