Social Studies

Hi. I'm Mr. Ledbetter and I will be your social studies teacher this year. We will be learning about Geography, Mapping and Western Civilizations.

We will also be doing Daily Geography which is a weekly assignment. Students are given 8 questions every Monday. They are due on Wednesday and we will review their answers and have a quiz on Friday on 5 of the 8 questions. The students will not know which 5 questions they will receive.
