    Course Information/Background
    Welcome to 8th grade Social Studies! I am looking forward to meeting you all and having an exciting semester. Throughout the course we will travel through American history and learn about the people, culture, places, wars, and changes in government. We will begin learning about the founding of America and end with the Civil War.
