Georgia Studies

Welcome to Mrs. McCook's 8th Grade Georgia Studies!

This is going to be a great year! I can't wait to share with you how geography, history, government, and economics has shaped the place we call home, Georgia. We are going to learn so much!!

Class overview

In eighth grade, students study Georgia geography, history, government, and economics. While the four strands are interwoven, ample opportunity is also provided for in-depth study of the geography of Georgia and the government of Georgia. U.S. historical events are included, as appropriate, to ensure students understand Georgia’s role in the history of the United States.
