Welcome 7th Grade Social Studies!
You are going to love the topics we are going to cover this year beginning with the decline of the Roman Empire to the rise of Christianity during Medieval Times. We will explore topics such as the geography of Africa, the duties of the Samurai, how silk production and fireworks developed in China, plus the rise of Chivalry and knights of the crusades. We will explore architectural developments such as the castle and gothic cathedrals. It is important that you read the material sections for homework, so that we may have great discussions the following day. You are responsible to stay on top of your reading, section review questions, note-taking for important information and studying for tests/quizzes. We will work together on creating thoughtful powerpoint presentations to share with others throughout the year. Collaboration on group tasks are important, so bring your best attitude possible!

I cannot wait to start our adventure this year together!
