Welcome to the First Course of 8th Grade Social Studies & World History!

In the first course, we will be covering a period of time spanning from the beginnings of human society all the way up to the Scientific Revolution.

We will be discussing famous figures in history like Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, and Alexander the Great. We will also be covering famous events like the Fall of Rome, the War of Roses, and the Black Death.

Additional outside work can be found in the World History workbook. Not every topic will have additional work, and all additional work is optional!
