Europeans in New World

September 10, 2015

School has officially kicked in to high gear now! The 8th grade Liberty social studies students have been working through chapter 2 (European Exploration and Settlement) of our textbook.  From this chapter we have learned why Europeans ended up in the New World and how that had a major influence on the native tribes already here.  Chapter 3 is up next and we will dive into a major unit project as we create travel brochures for the original 13 English colonies in America.  Students will explore all aspects of life, geography, and government for these early settlements and try to highlight some of the best aspects of their assigned colony.
