Everett - Social Studies

 6th Grade:  We have begun a unit on Time and History, looking first at how people of the past used time and the ways they kept track of events.  Key terms so far:  reference point   lunar phases  lunar-based calendar  solar-based calendar 

7th Grade:  We are looking at how the Feudal system began to give way as cities began to grow in the Middle Ages.  Students are working on developing their own Cornell Notes.  We are also continuing to work on marking texts and discussing current events.
