Social Studies

 

Teacher: Mrs. Pate

 
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 students understand how those cultures’ contributions have affected our modern world. Students will use electronic and print resources to find out more about new topics. Along with the study of history, students will work to understand the geography of the places they study and how that affects 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 current events will all be used so that children can better understand the world in which they live.
 
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 our state's role in the nation and world.
 
Eighth Grade Social Studies
Eighth graders will study United States History, from exploration and settlement of the continent by various peoples through Reconstruction. Students will study the social, economic, and political ideals of the United States, as well as ways in which the country strives to live up to the dreams of its founders. The major documents in 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 our nation's history and ideals.
