6th Grade/Social Studies

Welcome to Middle School Social Studies! I am looking forward to meeting you and excited about all the fun and engaging activities we have planned for this upcoming school year! Whether you enjoy Social Studies or it is your least favorite subject, I hope that this year will stretch your brains and expand your knowledge! Remember, history is a living subject, meaning history is being made RIGHT NOW as you read this! However, you might be amazed to learn that there is more to Social Studies than just history; we will also learn about geography, economics, civics, law, religion, sociology, philosophy, archaeology and anthropology. Not sure what all those words mean? Don't worry, by the end of the school year, YOU WILL!

Sixth grade is an exciting  year and you are sure to learn many new things! If you enjoy learning or reading about Ancient Egypt, Rome, Greece, or China.....well, you are going to think 6th grade is A-MAZING! The next nine months are sure to zoom by quickly and you will be surprised at how much you will learn.We work hard, create projects, work in groups, build our knowledge and understanding all the while having fun!

I look forward to continue to learn and grow in 6th grade social studies this year, as well as sharing my excitement of the world around us!
