The seventh grade world history course forms the second stage of Live Oak’s three-year history cycle. In the first semester, students will learn about man’s earliest civilizations as they investigate Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt. During the second semester, the pupils’ history study will focus on ancient Greece and Rome. In class, art projects, hands-on activities, mock trials, classroom debates and classroom plays will deepen the students understanding of the beliefs and cultures of the ancient world. The study of each of these four ancient civilizations will culminate in a major oral presentation. Finally, this year’s geography lessons will focus on the Middle East, North Africa, Scandinavia, Europe and the British Isles.
