Geography Comes to Sixth Grade

Welcome to 2013-2014 school year!  I would like to take this time to talk to you about our changes to sixth grade Social Studies.  We are no longer teaching American History, it has been replaced by Geography.  (Geography is the study of the Earth and how people use it.)  We have two parts to our curriculum.  Your student has a hard copy of the textbook and they also have an online version of the textbook.  However, there is only one workbook and it is online so it does require internet to function.  As a result, most of the workbook assignments will be done at school.  All of us are realizing that it is going to take some getting use to, but we look forward to learning about the world around us.
