Curriculum Topics

Our curriculum topics include creating a news program about the Neolithic Revolution, exploring developing civilizations in Mesopotamia, creating an Egyptian Museum exhibit, a  comparison of the Greek city states of Athens and Sparta, creating a newspaper during our study of ancient Rome, and a written project focused on the Middle Ages.


Current Events

It is important that the citizens of a democracy be well-informed.  To that end, we will follow current news stories in our classes at least once each month. Stories will be chosen for discussion from Newsela and from Discovery Ed.
