Welcome to
 US History 7

The United States began as a few fortune hunters and refugees, trying to start a new life alongside the Native Americans. A short time later, America was declaring its independence and beginning a tricky experiment in freedom, democracy and equality. Less than a century after that, the United States was at war with itself, and almost ceased to exist. The first year of U.S. History is action-packed! The year is organized into four units. The questions indicate our key topics of study in each unit.


UNIT 1:  Three Worlds Meet (pre-1500-1763)

UNIT 2:  Creating a New Nation (1763-1791)

UNIT 3:  The Nation Grows (1789-1850)

UNIT 4: The Nation Divides (1820-1865)

But wait…there’s more! We’re also going to be developing SKILLS that will prepare you for the 8th Grade Social Studies Assessment, your future in high school and life in general.
