7th Grade Social Studies

The Social Studies teachers of Forbush Middle School are happy to welcome you and your children to Forbush Middle School. The Social Studies department at FMS looks forward to helping your child prepare to have the skills/knowledge needed to be a responsible citizen and to be a successful student in high school and beyond. The skills and objectives that guide our curriculum are invaluable to democracy. The nation needs to be assured that the “torch of liberty” is passed to a generation that understands the exceptional nature of American democracy. We work with students so they will become voting citizens aware of our great traditions and America’s future responsibilities, not only to its citizens, but to all nations that desire the opportunities that only freedom can provide. If, at anytime, you have specific questions about your child’s performance or North Carolina’s approved, and required, social studies curriculum, we are at your service. Social Studies is a vital subject that will prepare this generation to successfully defend the “torch of liberty” that they will someday pass to their children.

Some of the topics that will be covered in the 7th grade include:

The Age of Exploration

The Slave Trade


Industrial Revolution

Colonialism and Imperialism

The Growth of Democracy

Types of Government


Types of Economies


Cold War

World War II

The Impact of Technology on Society

Thank you,

FMS Social Studies Teachers
