Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies!

Hello Stiles Spartans! I look forward to getting to know each of you this year as we explore many of the cultures that make up our world. Sixth grade Social Studies is called World Cultures and Geography. We will be focusing on the geography, history, governments, economies, and ways of life in the various culture regions of the world. Each six weeks will have its own learning matrix, which will show our learning targets. In addition, each six weeks will have a new knowledge map, which will include the basic facts on which we will build our learning. These will always be available at the beginning of each six weeks on this website and in each student's interactive notebook (INB). An important tool we use daily is a student's planner, either in the form of a spiral or a device. Each day we spend class time filling out needed information. Please ask your child often to see his/her planner or device.
