Social Studies Grade 6
In Grade 6, students will journey through the Ancient and Modern World. We will study Ancient Civilizations and learn what they have contributed to modern day society. We will learn the foundations of many religions of the world, such as: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.


We will study Ancient societies such as Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and China- to name a few. To gain better understanding of these societies we will use Document Based Questions (DBQ’s). Our goal will be to make cross-curricular connections using primary and secondary sources.


ELA Grade 6

Grade 6: In sixth grade, students apply skills they’ve learned in earlier grades to make sense of longer, more challenging books and articles. This includes learning about how authors try to influence readers and finding reasons to support their ideas. By focusing on these skills, sixth grade students will sharpen their ability to write and speak with more clarity and coherence.
