House Four - Seventh Grade World Cultures
Contact Information:
Telephone: (609) 806-4270 ext. 5810

Course Description
        Seventh Grade World Cultures is a course that deals with cultures of people throughout the world with a focus on the time period between 500 CE and 1500 CE.  In our study of these cultures, we will incorporate almost all of the Social Sciences including history, geography, anthropology and archaeology.  As we learn over the course of the year, we will be analyzing what makes the lives of these people so unique and what characteristics we can find similar to ours.   One of the most important aspects of this course includes using our own cultural experiences to help us learn in this course.  

        On this page you will find the Enduring Understandings for our current unit of study.  On the left sidebar, you can find links to find out the Daily Practice assignments below you can find a link to Resources and Documents that we use during our lessons.

Enduring Understandings:
  • The geography of an environment has consistently provided both positive and negative impacts to the cultures living within the environment throughout history.
  • Empires have risen due to the effort and power of leaders but also have declined due to a combination of internal and external factors.
  • Medieval cultures developed unique military strengths that allowed them to maintain control over their people, defend against outsiders and expand their area of rule.
  • Cultures have chosen to expand and conquer other areas which caused conflict to occur between themselves and other groups of people.
  • An interconnected series of trade routes called the Silk Road created periods of global acculturation causing the introduction of many inventions that changed many cultures.
