Welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies!
8th grade Social Studies students have completed their first unit of study:
Unit 1: The Five Themes of Geography. The culminating Assessment for the unit was a designed book project. The students were tasked to show their understanding of the 5 Themes, through the process of choosing five places on the globe and describing those places in terms of the 5 themes.
This week we began our unit on the Electoral Process. Students will be exploring Political Parties and defining the decisions political Parties make that influence public policy.
Check Skyward for grade and assignment updates. I will be emailing Progress Reports and general information periodically.
