Welcome to the 8th Grade World History Wiki
The study of world history helps us to understand why our world is the way it is today. By studying the past, we learn that all events big and small affect one another. By trying to explain these effects, we can better plan for the future of humanity. As part of Pottsgrove School District's history curriculum, your 8th grade world history class will pick up where 6th grade left off with the fall of the Roman Empire. Because the Roman Empire was so vast, its collapse had wide-ranging effects on the cultures of Europe and the Middle East. This school year, we will trace those effects through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Age of Exploration. The resources found on this wiki page will assist you in your exploration of the past and its affect on our future.
