Bender's Brainiacs : Periods 4 & 6 Social Studies
Social Studies Class Overview

The Focus for the sixth grade social studies is Ancient Civilizations. We will be studying the following units as outlined by the California State Standards:

á

  • Early Man,
  • Mesopotamia,
  • Ancient India,
  • Ancient China,
  • Ancient Egypt,
  • Ancient Israel,
  • Ancient and Classical Greece,
  • The Early Roman Empire,á
  • Christianity and the Decline of Rome

(Unit in red is the unit we are currently studying)

We will go into greater depth on some units, as certain topics lend themselves to greater exploration and student interest. Students will read from the text, take notes, answer pertinent questions, view and respond to visual media, make and interpret maps, graphs, and charts and take chapter quizzes. Students will be involved in various projects and simulation activities throughout the year, including at least one research report, and one power point project.

Cornell notes to text
When we start a new chapter, we will preview it first. After we chunk and discuss the chapter, you will complete Cornell Notes (double column notes) on the lesson. Take good notes because you can use them on the lesson review quiz. There will be other activities in class and out, but taking good notes from the text is a skill that will help you be successful in all your academic classes.
Parent Letter and Survey

Parents,
Please fill out the white survey and have your child return it to me as quickly as possible. If you would print your e-mail address on the form, it would help facilitate a more accurate input of parent e-mails. Once you have entered your e-mail into Aeries Parent Portal, you can begin accessing grades and other information. Thanks! Mrs. Bender
