6th Grade Social Studies
The goal of Social Studies is to open students minds to the wonders of our world, including the people in it. My view is if students don't gain a love of Social Studies after being in this class they will certainly gain a better appreciation of the rich world around us today.
In this class we will be covering a variety of subjects during this year and those topics include;
Geographic land forms
The location of continents and the countries within them.
Varying cultures around the world including their economies and characteristics
Human environment interaction
The main purpose of this class is to learn how to think like a historian. Students will get to take part in both individual and group activities that are designed to help them learn better research skills and look at things analytically.
Some topics we will be covering during our semester together are;
What is history?
