8th grade is about  U.S. History.  Our journey begins in the the colonial period, the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War, the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, and U.S. Government. We will also learn about the Civil War and Westward Expansion up to the late 1800’s. We will also concentrate on current events and how they relate to the past. Learning to think about, analyze and synthesize these events will be stressed. In addition to the social studies aspects of this class, geography, reading, writing, research, reports, and presentations will be a big portion of the activities during the next two semesters.
