- One of the world's greatest empires from approximately 1290 until 1922
- The center of the empire was located in Anatolia, modern-day Turkey
- At the height of its influence in the 1500's, it was the world's mightiest empire
- Nearly surrounded the Mediterranean Sea, covering much of southeastern Europe, northern Africa, and the Arab Middle East
Also, TMSA's 7th grade students are exploring the European partitioning in the Middle East after the breakup of the Ottoman Empire, which led to regional conflict. Students learning the historical reasons for the establishment of the modern State of Israel in 1948; inclusive of the Jewish religious connection to the land, the Holocaust, anti-Semitism, and Zionism in Europe.
Aligned with the project based learning model, students will also feature a culinary experience to show pride, traditions, and rich heritage throughout middle eastern countries. Of which, select students will prepare a dish. Students will get to highlight why they selected the dish, why it’s important to the middle eastern culture and explain the ingredients used to cook the dish.

To extend the curriculum from “text-book to real world” application, TMSA’s 7th Grade Science students
are participating in our 2nd year of the “Trout in the Classroom” (TIC) Program sponsored by the Upper
Chattahoochee Chapter of Trout Unlimited. The TIC program educates students about the life cycle of
Rainbow trout. The program for this year began back in February, when we received approximately 150
fertilized eggs flown in from a hatchery in Washington State. Shortly after arrival, the embryos inside the
eggs began to hatch into “sac-frys” which survived on the leftover yolk sac from their time in the egg.
After about 2 weeks, with the food in their yolk sacs depleted, the small fry juvenile trout began their
next phase of development by receiving hand fed meals of protein rich fish food. Currently, we are
happy to report that our trout are healthy and growing! Through the unique hands-on experience of
raising these trout, students are learning important fundamentals about ecology, natural selection,
energy flow, and the evidence behind the Theory of Evolution. In addition to complimenting the Science
curriculum, this program promotes an awareness of the role of conservation in valuing and maintaining
Georgia’s natural resources.
