6th Grade Social Studies!
What was life like for humankind 500 years ago? 5,000 years ago? 50,000 Years Ago?
This year we will explore the ancient civilizations of our world. We will study the origins of civilization, world religions, the literature and the arts, stories of scientific progress and technological change, and the rise and fall of varying political powers so we can have a better perspective on our place in the vast unfolding of histories.
Some of the topics we will investigate through primary sources and secondary sources include:
"Cave Men" and Early Human Ancestors
Ancient and Early India
Ancient and Early China
This year students will study the fields of social science:
- A 3-ring binder (about 1-inch or larger)
