Grade 6 Social Studies | Atlantis Cluster

Dear Family,

Our social studies class will be studying the History of Our World. We will focus mainly on four major ancient civilizations including the Fertile Crescent (ancient Mesopotamia), ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, and ancient Rome. 

One of the first topics we will study is prehistory---the period of time before people recorded events in writing.  As you go through your daily activities, look for opportunities to “piece together” history with your child.

Our social studies class will also be taking a closer look at the geography of the civilizations we are studying .We will study how geography affected the ways civilizations developed.  The next time you travel through your community, discuss with your child how physical geography can impact how a town or a city develops.

In the weeks ahead, your child may be talking about projects and activities assigned in social studies.  Please take the time to support your child’s learning through discussion and involvement.  I hope you will enjoy sharing in this exciting educational journey with your student.

Night Back: Thursday

Materials Needed: Your materials for the class are listed below. 

  • A notebook
  • A textbook (History of Our World)
  • A pencil/pen

Grading Breakdown: Each quarter, you will be graded based on the following percentages:

  • Tests/Projects:                    60%
  • Quizzes/Class Work:           20%
  • Homework:                         10%
  • Formal Writing:                   10%

Respect Policy: All students are expected to treat their teachers, classmates and themselves respectfully in every sense of the word.

  • No bullying of any kind will be tolerated
  • Each student will listen to, and respect the opinions of other students
  • No one will interrupt a classmate while he or she is speaking

Preparation: All students are expected to be prepared for class each day. This means coming to class with your notebook, textbook (as needed), as well as pencils or pens. This also applies to completed homework and being ready to participate in the day’s activity.

Homework: Students are required to copy the posted homework into their agenda books as it is assigned daily except Fridays.

Please encourage your child to study hard and reach their academic goals.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Leah Kouch
