Welcome Back To School!

Welcome to the 8th Grade Social Studies Website!  This website will be used as a daily log of our in class activities. Any projects, updates, homework, or general information will be posted daily.

This class will be traditional pen and paper for the first few days then transition to almost fully on the iPad.

For the first few days students will need to bring a spiral notebook and a pen to class. Once students get their iPads back the class will have a heavy focus on product creation using technology.  The most important thing that needs to be brought to class is your device.

I look forward to a great year!
