Welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies Mr. Collins on Team 7-1!
I'm so happy to welcome you to an exciting journey in the exploration of history, civics, economics, and geography! During the year, we will study a time period that stretches from early European colonization of the Americas in the 1400's, all the way through the changes that occurred in the United States as a result the Civil War in the 1800's. As part of our time together, we will learn how the United States was created, and you will have opportunity to learn how your government works and what it means to be an active citizen in the 21st Century! As we study the history of our great country, we will also examine current events affecting the United States and the world!
