Course Description:
        In 6th grade World History we will learn about civilizations outside of the U.S. and how
they have influenced our world today. We start out with the basics of history, to include where
we obtain it and what we can and cannot believe to be true. We will then jump into various
civilizations to include: Mesopotamians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. We will cover the rise
and fall of each of these civilizations, as well as their contributions to our world today.
