• 6th Grade Social Studies
    Ancient Civilizations
    Knowledge is Power
     This year, 6th grade students will be learning about many of the ancient civilizations that developed throughout our world! Our focus begins with pre-history and hunters and gatherers and moves on through time covering Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, Ancient China, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome. Learning will occur by participating in simulations, hands-on activities, research, and nonfiction reading, as well as small group work and whole group instruction. As we learn about these ancient civilizations, students will be focusing on five defining characteristics of a civilization: politics and government, interactions with the environment, culture, economics, and social structure. We will refer to these five characteristics as P.IE.C.E.S.
