Eighth Grade Social Studies Update
The eighth graders were all assigned a topic last week in social studies and are busy researching their topic and choosing how they will “teach” this topic to the class. We are studying the late 1800’s and early 1900’s and topics include education reforms, women’s suffrage, child labor, the growth of railroads, immigration, labor unions, and new inventions. Many students are experimenting with Prezi, which is a new way of using technology to do presentations. They will begin presenting next Thursday, and we look forward to seeing them!
