8th Grade Social Studies: US History
History of the Americas from the first nomadic travelers to the early colonies, the Revolutionary War and the birth of a nation through the rise and expansion of the United States of America to the Civil War and Reconstruction.
We will be using both the hard-copy textbook (US History Beginnings to 1877 published by HMH) in the classroom as well as the e-book accessible via the Portal. In addition, we will access Discovery Education via chromebooks on regularly scheduled "tech-days". This year, Google Classroom will also play a role in the US History instruction.
This will be an exciting year for North Marion Middle School as we continue our journey as a STEAM school. Throughout all curriculum, connections will be made with all things related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) with special emphasis on STEM and STEAM careers.
