Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies. We will learn about world geography with a big focus on different cultures around the world while exploring themes of geography this school year. Students will gain a better understanding of Social Studies through project based learning assignments throughout the year. I am so excited to share my love of different countries and cultures with your child. It's going to be an amazing year in Social Studies!
