Dear 7th and 8th Grade Students and Parents,
Spring break is finally here! Attached you will find the 7th or 8th grade social studies spring break packet. The break packets are oriented around student analysis of primary and secondary documents, a critical social studies skill set. These documents will require students to apply critical thinking skills. So, please don’t rush through the assignments. The reading packets will be part of the 3rd quarter grade (project grade) and is due by March online to the google classroom site.
The 7th and 8th grade packets provide introductions on the topics and type of inquiry students will make in their content areas. 7th grade packet is an introduction to Islam, the next unit to be covered in class. The 8th grade packet helps students analyze the first ten amendments, The Bill of Rights. Completion of these packets will enhance and sharpen student understanding, critical thinking, and appreciation for these topics since all of us are impacted by the effects of events in history associated with the content areas.
The reading packets will be posted to the student google classroom sites. All students need to do is open-up the assignment on google classroom. Here are the 2020 – 2021 social studies classroom site passwords:
- Class 8A: mrnv5di
- Class 8B: kjp3wp2
- Class 7A: ymydnt6

Remember parents and students, the packets are due the first day back from break…NO EXCUSES! I have included my email address above, so please feel free to contact me should you have questions.
Stay safe and see you after the break.
