Social Studies is the study of human society past and present. In this class, we will learn about the world and the peoples who live in it by studying three major areas: Geography, History, and World Religions. Our main focus will be on History, which we will study by looking at eight major civilizations: Fertile Crescent civilizations, India, Greece, Rome, early Islamic civilizations, China, Japan, and North African civilizations.
