We will work to utilize the 4Cs of 21st Century learning throughout our journey
Students in my social studies program will be engaged in the geographic study of world regions as they examine major civilization development. The 6th grade curriculum is designed to allow students to observe societies dissimilar to their own in such a way as to broaden their understanding of people and places in an increasingly interdependent world.
Students examine areas of the world having the longest record of human habitation and the richest diversity of human experience. These are regions within which the vast majority of the world's people live and regions that possess some of the world's most valuable resources.
Students will trace the human development from archaeological evidence of early man. Students will explore the expansion of and the decline of major civilizations, their patterns of geography, and the development of political, economic, and societal systems in ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece and Rome. Students will analyze and evaluate how foundations of society have influenced the modern era.
