7th Grade Social Studies

April 30, 2019

Students in Mr. Allen's 7th grade social studies classes are finishing up their studies on the Ancient Romans.   Students created newspapers where they retold stories of events as though they had just happened.   For example, students could tell about Julius Caesar's assassination on the floor of the Roman Senate, telling the details complete with witnesses and experts.  They topped off the projects with images from the scene and captions about their images.

As we explore the decline of the Roman Empire, and move towards the European Middle Ages, the News theme will remain.  The students will have an opportunity to explain the various people and events of the Middle Ages by telling a news report.   Students will play the role of Student reporters interviewing experts and witnesses to various events including the Crowning of Charlemagne, The Black Death, and the Crusades.
