Social Studies / History
    Our focus in on the Middle Ages.  We are picking up where 6th grade History left off;  the Fall of the Roman Empire.  This ushered in a period in Europe often referred to as "The Dark Ages".
    Castles were central to the feudal kingdoms of the Medieval era.  For this reason, there will be a major project assigned this quarter.  Each student will build a Middle Ages castle with all of its features and labelled parts.  Students have the option to work alone or with one partner.
    Projected due date:  Wednesday, June 6th.
