Welcome to Social Studies
When we study history, we are historians.
When we study people, we are anthropologists.
When we study maps, we are cartographers.
When we study governments, we are political scientists.
When we study economies, we are economists.
When we study artifacts, we are archaeologists.
When we study human interactions, we are sociologists.
When we study Social Studies, we are becoming citizens of the world!

We will be using Google Classroom a lot this year. All homework, classwork, documents, and readings can be found on Google Classroom. Each student is already signed up for our class. Students should visit classroom.google.com to log on. All announcements will be posted on Google Classroom. Please email me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Since all work is posted online, students are responsible for any missed work due to absences. Students may contact the teacher if they need extended time due to absence.
Parents and students, follow our class Instagram and Twitter accounts for announcements, updates, and photos of activities we do in class!
