Welcome to 6th grade social studies! This year we will be studying the world and world geography. We will focus on studying the continents through the five themes of geography (location, place, human environment interaction, movement, and region). Students can access our book online (see the ConnectEd link to the right.) Students may also use Moodle to access resources for class (again see link to right.)
Through our study of the continents, students will be able to:
- Explain how the five themes of geography affect decisions people make.
- Identify the elements and purposes of maps, charts, and globes.
- Analyze maps to draw conclusions about the five themes of geography.
By the end of the year, 100% of students will prove their proficiency by scoring 70% or higher on quarterly assessments.
