7th grade American History focuses on developing students' historical knowledge and skills. Students learn about historical events from the American Civil War through today.

7th grade students at BCMS re-enact history through simulations and hands-on learning activities that allow them to experience historical events from America's past.

Students will bomb Fort Sumter, hunt buffalo on the wild plains, mine for gold, migrate west, lose all their money in the stock market crash of 1929, participate in a Civil War battle, and many more exciting events.

In addition to these activities, students will also develop their ability to critically think about the important events of our nation's past through historical debates and the examination and evaluation of primary historical documents.
