    Smile Eight Grade Social Studies?

    So what are you doing for eighth grade social studies. I have a DD that will need this for next year. I see there is nothing offered but it looks like we may be able to take the high school courses. Are you supplementing with something else? If so, please share if possible.

    KC,
    What we did was extend the 6th and 7th grade social studies into 3 years instead of 2. Part of this is because we were behind. The year my daughter did the Civil War lasted much longer than a year because she just had no interest and dragged her feet in learning it. I just added some reading of biographies/autobiographies, and fictional historic accounts to supplement what T4L has available and made the 2 years extend to 3. We are now doing a World History and will be in the T4L World Geography for 9th grade social studies in the fall. I hope that makes sense
