Social Studies

The main focus of the sixth-grade social studies curriculum is world geography. We will look at the regions of the world while also studying population, migration/immigration, culture, government, and economics.

Included in our studies will be many writing, note taking, and summarization strategies, while learning the best ways to read and comprehend nonfiction text.  Students will be assessed through projects, as well as formatively and summatively.  We will also watch CNN Student News and/or Channel One News on a regular basis in class, and react to world issues through current events.  Select either link below to go right to CNN Student News or Channel One News.  Check here for additional websites being added including study guides for upcoming tests.  Some are already attached below.
