7th Grade World Studies

World Studies 7 Grade 7 (one year) Required

Seventh grade students will study world history from 750 B.C. to 1600 A.D. They will use maps and other geographic representations to trace the development of human settlement, movement of people and products over time. They will see how trade routes connecting Africa, Europe and Asia caused the spread of technology and major world religions and the growth of empires. Greece and Rome will be studied focusing on law and government, engineering and technology, art and architecture and literature. Students will look at the feudal and manorial systems and how they developed as a result of Germanic invasions on the Roman Empire. They will understand what influenced the European Renaissance and that it introduced revolutionary ideas, leading to cultural, scientific, and social changes. They will look at how Individuals, governments and businesses analyze costs and benefits when making economic decisions. Distribution of productive resources in the various regions of the world contributed to specialization, trade and interdependence. The growth of cities and empires fostered the growth of markets. Market exchanges encouraged specialization and the transition from barter to monetary economics.
