8th Grade Social Studies

April 12, 2017

Grade 8 has had a very busy semester. We had a very successful History Night. Many projects were done exceptionally well and our judges were impressed. Several students were chosen to move on to the Regional competition in Kearney: Addison Sund, Leilany Diaz, Daniel Arevalo, Victoria Perez, Michell Plazas, Kennia Garcia. Michell Plazas and Addison were then selected to move on to the State competition. Congratulations to them all.

Additionally this Semester we have memorized the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution, as well as the first 16 Presidents of the United States. We have also been studying the Bill of Rights, Political Development of the Early Republic, Manifest Destiny and will finish the year with Life in the West, Mexicano Contributions to the Southwest, the Reform Era and a short unit on Economics.
