In this course, students will expand their understanding of God’s world by exploring the history, geography, and culture of major countries in the Eastern Hemisphere. Students will also learn about current events and missionaries in the Eastern Hemisphere. Reading comprehension, scholarly Internet research, creativity, writing and critical thinking skills are integrated into this engaging course.


Become a missionary without leaving home! In Social Studies 7, students will gain a mind for missions as they explore the five themes of geography and investigate current events in the eastern hemisphere (Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania). Before setting off to explore countries, students will learn how God is actively working and how they can be praying for God’s continued work in the hearts of people. Through the completion of projects, interactive lessons, videos, and country profiles, students will compare and contrast cultures, biomes, history, government structures, landforms, natural resources, cuisine, flags, religious beliefs, and more!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
