Welcome to Mrs. Williams'
    World History  Class!
  • Welcome to FMS and Ancient World History


    Welcome to Mrs. Williams' History class! We are dedicated historians, investigating the mysteries of the past in order to better understand our present and prepare for the future! We'll be learning all sorts of interesting things this year, from the struggles of early humans to the legalist laws of the Chinese emperors. Come on in and brace yourself for an adventure! 

    As we begin instruction from a distance this year, please be sure to check your Google Classroom regularly. There will be links to readings, videos, and projects. We will walk this road together and navigate the bumps as a team! Ready for adventure?!

    Colored pencils
    Lots of regular pencils

    Wish List: I am always in need of white paper, Kleenex, and disinfecting wipes. Any donations would be greatly appreciated, but not required.
