Ancient History, Grade 6  

In Sixth Grade, students look at present times through Ancient History. We study the major themes of Social Studies like Geography, Economy, Government, and Human Rights through directed Units of inquiry. The course begins with an intentional building of community and understanding of various cultures and diversity. We then move into Human Rights, where students study, reflect on, and evaluate Speeches and, in turn, deliver a Human Rights Speech of their own. We then pick up where fifth grade left off and investigate the rise and fall of empires, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance Period, and the Age of Enlightenment. Throughout the year, the students use their knowledge of what they learned in their units of inquiry to develop their own country with our culminating project, Global Endeavors. Students replace a country in the world, take on their population, geography, but can change their government, economic system, constitution, and military. This combines everything the students have learned from ancient civilizations and the present-day struggles we see in the world. Students create and present this in front of their peers and faculty.
