7th Grade Social Studies with Mrs. Kim Longwell

7th Grade Social Studies ► We will study 4 regions of the Eastern Hemisphere this year:

  • SW Asia and North Africa (Middle East)
  • Sub-Saharan Africa
  • South and East Asia (India, China and Japan)
  • Russia/Soviet Union

In each region we will focus on Geography, History, Culture, Government and Economics.



My name is Kim Longwell and I teach 7th grade Social Studies. This is my 14th year teaching at Morton. I love learning about and teaching about the world. In 2011 I traveled to China to gain first hand knowledge of a country I teach about in my curriculum. My husband and I have 4 sons and one grandson. I have lived in Omaha my whole life except for three years we spent living in Atlanta, Georgia. In my spare time I like to travel, bike ride, garden, hike, spend time with my grandson and read.  Teaching is my passion and I love being able to teach your kids about the many places and cultures around the world.
