• Welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies!!!  

    Grade 7 Social Studies is arranged chronologically and incorporates geography as well as economic, social, and political trends. The course content is divided into eight Key Ideas, tracing the human experience in the United States from preColumbian times until the Civil War, with a focus on the people, events, and places in New York State as applicable.  Throughout the course, teachers should help students see connections across time. For example, when examining indentured servitude and slavery, teachers could examine human trafficking, experiences of immigrants and informed action that citizens might take.
