I'm in desperate need for some help. I teach 6th - 8th grade for SS and Language Arts. Trying to think of a theme. I dont want it to be too babyish either. Any suggestions?

Hmmm, maybe Survivor? Is Harry Potter too childish for that age?

What about a Trip Around the World?

I am not sure what your SS units/theme are but think about them and how you could get a theme for the year.

i'm going through this same problem. it'll be my first year teaching social studies and i have no idea what to do. ive taught science for the past 2 years (7th and 8th grade) and just used bright colors because i didn't want a silly, young theme. i want something different so i'm trying to just do things that hit the curriculum. the curriculum just changed (i'm in MS btw) to cover from the beginning of recorded history (cavemen) up to renaissance. i'm planning on having my door look like a sarcophagus (gona buy a big mask at a party store (hopefully) and build around that), i have a komono for when we talk about ancient asia, i'm hoping to put a timeline around the top of the walls all around the room. maybe a time-travel theme if you want a theme. i think it'd be cool to just have things the kids can touch and possibly dress up in for the different topics.

middle school kids also think everything is lame, so i plan on having each thing i talk about relate to a movie, song, or SOMETHING they think is less lame.

What about the Wonders of the World? You could pick and choose what is applicable....?
