GRADE 6: ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS AND GEOGRAPHY 

The social studies program for grades six introduces students to the study of the history, culture, and geography of ancient civilizations.

The 6th grade program seeks to interest students in the origin and development of early civilizations. The program begins with developing students’ knowledge of geography and culture. Students continue with their study of early humans, the rise of ancient river civilizations, and emerging empires.

It is my hope these perspectives, concepts, and skills will enable students to gain an understanding of themselves and the diverse and various people and cultures of the world.
