Welcome to your 7th Grade Social Studies class. This year, you will be learning about Civics. What is Civics? Don't worry, we will get into that in time. But you should know you will be learning in-depth about your country's (The United States of America) government and how it interacts with other countries around the world. Before we get too detailed, we are going to take some time to learn about one another and the classroom you will be succeeding in.
