8th Grade Social Studies

The Social Studies teachers of Forbush Middle School are happy to welcome you and your children to Forbush Middle School next year.  The Social Studies department at FMS looks forward to helping your child prepare for High School.  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 those 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 our State’s approved social studies curriculum, we are at your service.  Social Studies is a vital subject that will prepare this generation to successfully defend this ‘torch of liberty’ that they will someday pass to their children.

Some of the topics that will be covered in the 8th grade include:

US/NC Geography and Social Studies 101

Colonization and settlement
