Welcome to 6th grade Social Studies! We will be learning about the early ages and the beginning of various civilizations. We will start with Mesopotamia, and start exploring from there! We will always discuss how the geography of these early civilizations influenced how the people grew and developed their cultures. We will use our textbooks to gain understanding of the various civilizations we study, and then have discussions to go beyond the text and understand more about what has shaped our world today. Assessments will be given, but we will also complete hands on projects that will help us immerse ourselves into that time period.
