Welcome to

7th grade Social Studies! 

Ms. Cooper



7th grade Social Studies is divided into two distinct areas of study; geography and history.
The first semester will be a study of Ancient World History.  In this unit, we will learn more about the first three Eras of world History; Era I:  the Beginnings of Human Society, Era II:  Early Civilizations and the Emergence of Pastoral Peoples,  and Era III:  Classical Traditions and Major Empires and World Religions.  This semester will culminate in a video documentay project.
The second semester is an exploration of the continents of Africa and Asia.  Included in this study is physical geography, cultures (human geography), political divisions, modern history, and current events of each region.  The semester will culminate in the Travel Fair project.
We have some exciting new materials, resources, and activities planned so you will gain more knowledge in these areas to help you achieve the goal of contributing citizens.
I look forward to working with you in the coming year!
