Welcome to Social Studies 8! This Socials class begins with a look at the Fall of Ancient Rome and the changes to the world, people, and cultures all over Europe and the Middle East at that time. As we travel through the past, we examine Medieval Europe, Rise of the World Religions, The Crusades, and other civilizations and how they developed and influenced the world we know today.
Our journey will take us back to Europe to the Dark Ages, the Late Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and start of modern day Exploration to the New Worlds of the Americas. Throughout, we will consider God's providence in his guiding of world events.
