6th Grade Social Studies
In the sixth grade, students begin to study: the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, Australia, and Oceania. Students will learn about essential historical events that will help them develop a better understanding of specific regions and their position in the modern world. Each region develops differently due to its location, climate, physical characteristics, and natural resources.
Each student will learn how the geography of a region impacts population, industry, human environment, and government. Different economic systems will be introduced, and students will describe the factors that cause economic growth. Students will also examine the presence or absence of the factors in each region around the world across time. Comparing and contrasting the cooperation and conflict of these regions will develop a better understanding of each region's political and economical systems.
