Welcome to 6th grade Social Studies, the study of ancient world civilizations! Boring, right? I don't think so. Those of you who have ever used the alphabet have the ancient Phonecians to thank, but that's for later. Much of the modern- day "stuff" we rely on was invented along the banks of the Nile and Indus Rivers, but that's also for later. Be ready to learn how the ideas and innovations of people thousands of years ago continue to affect present- day American culture.
Technology will play a big role in our class as I plan to use this website to communicate information and extend your learning. We must quickly learn how to use it together.
So... hope you enjoy this year! Parents-- never hesitate to use this site to contact me with questions.
