Course Description: Course Description: Social Studies in grade six expand students’ understanding of history through the study of people and
events before the era of European exploration and settlement. This study focuses not only on the significance of geography in the development of the
human story but also on the everyday lives, problems, and accomplishments of the people and their roses in development social economic, and
political structures of the major civilizations.

Internationalism: The contribution of early civilizations is a focus of this course. Natural connections to global awareness can be made quite
easily. Writing from the Phoenicians, Greeks, Latinas and Romans to modern day are examples of these connections. Development of language,
government, arts and sciences, infusions and assimilation of cultures demonstrates the independence and interdependence of these cultures.

assessment specific to textbook topics, reproducible support materials such as maps; Mr. Don’s Ancient History webpage (power points, knowledge
games); Live Earth webpage used with white board to develop and reinforce map skills.
