7th Social Studies: Course Description
The focus of 7th grade social studies is geography. First, we define physical and human geography and how geography helps us understand the world in which we live. Most of the first trimester focuses on our physical world and understanding how physical geography impacts where and how we live. In the second trimester, our focus shifts to human geography. We learn about how our culture shapes how we view our own culture as well as the culture of others. In addition, we will become familiar with the many types of government and economic systems that exist in our world. We will also study on our own government and how a democracy requires citizens to be active participants in the local, state and national communities. 7th grade social studies provides students opportunities to understand his/her own community and also understand and appreciate how other people live in their own societies.
