NB, there are four themes to the SS program. Below you will find material on both Gr. 7 and 8. Please note, during the year, we will be mixing outcomes.

​Social Studies for Gr. 7 and 8 is a mix of four broad themes. Activities are varied and include individual, pair and group arrangements. Assessments include a collection of research projects, formal writing assignments, presentations and tests. Gr. 7 and 8 SS has a particular focus on Pacific rim and northern rim countries. Throughout the material, First Nations content is integrated.

  • Interactions and Interdependence of Nations

  • Dynamic Relationships

  • Power and Authority

  • Resources and Wealth

Current Theme - Dynamic Relationships - human/environmental interaction

Human beings both have impact on and are impacted by the surrounding environment. Students are currently engaged in a short project that asks them to consider a Pacific or northern rim country in this context.

Project Handout - duplicate. A rough copy alternative was also handed out to support the research.
