Sixth Grade

6th graders begin this course by exploring the other identities and communities, including their new school environment. They build on this foundation as they consider how geography impacts human societies around the world. They then investigate the origins of human life and consider how and why the first complex societies evolved. They will examine the growth of government and religion in ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, India and Israel.
