Middle School Social Studies

Studying History, Geography, and More in Middle School Social Studies

The Middle School Social Studies classes have been quite busy studying various topics throughout the year. The 6th Grade have traveled from the Eastern/Western parts of the Mississippi to the cultures of South America. They have created travel brochures and enhanced their research skills by focusing on the areas of dance, film, and food.

The 7th Grade has currently been discussing the topic of the Constitution and the Branches of Government. They even enjoyed watching an “oldie but a goodie” film “How a Bill Becomes a Law” courtesy of Schoolhouse Rock. With the use of “separation of powers”, they then created businesses and roles of the employees to symbolize how the roles of government are balanced and work together.

The 8th Grade recently put on Vaudeville Acts relating to the “changing culture” in the 1900’s. They had such fun working together and utilizing their own talents while also connecting it with history.

In addition we had two 8th graders progress onto the Regional Competition with their National History Day projects focusing on “Turning Points in History”. Congratulations to Amelia Atkinson (documentary) and Charlie Landry (website) for placing first in their categories at this level. They will now be moving onto the State Competition in April. Congratulations are also in order for 8th Grader Cristiano Pereira who will be representing OMPH School at our Diocesan Geography Bee this month.

We wish everyone the best of luck as they prepare for their competitions!
