6th Grade Social StudiesAncient CivilizationsThis 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.
