Social Studies 6 is an integrated study of select civilizations of the ancient world using the social science lenses of economics, geography, history, and political science. Both physical and human geography are woven throughout each unit of study in order to build students’ understanding of the connection between people and the Earth, as well as the economic, political, and social systems that humans created over time. Using the tools of a historian, students will gain an understanding of how these societies laid the foundation for modern culture as well as the impact they have on life today. Throughout the course, students will use a variety of research tools and presentation formats. The curriculum helps students recognize contributions made to society by different cultural, religious, and ethnic groups throughout time and how they are still relevant today.
