Social Studies

The Marsh Junior Social Science Department is eager to help students understand the importance of history in their lives - how it has created their present and how it will impact their future.

Our 6th and 7th grade courses include world history, ancient civilizations and geography, including the everyday lives, problems and accomplishments of people and how they shaped the world we live in today.
 
The 8th grade course includes discovery and settlement, founding of the colonies, war for independence, birth of our nation, westward movement, Native Americans, Civil War and Reconstruction.
 
All classes meet the California History-Social Science Content Standards for California Public Schools for Grades 6-8.
