    8th grade social studies is North Carolina and United States History.  That means that we learn about the history of our nation and our state, as well as the basics of how our nation's government works! 

    This includes the periods of colonization, westward expansion, the progressive era, the United States' role in both world wars, and more! 

    We will also learn some basics about economics.

     🤔 This year's "BIG IDEA" 💡

    America's history is made up of both proud and problematic events.  Our nation is comprised of a diverse array of people, and just like a person it is not perfect but rather complex.  What does being American mean to you?
