Ms. Kindley's World Studies Social Studies Class
Welcome to Ms. Kindley's adventures in social studies. The focus for sixth grade is World Studies: Early Man-Middle Ages. This time period covers prehistory, rise of civilizations, Mesopotamia, Ancient Egyp, Ancient India, Ancient China, Greece, Rome, medieval Africa, Mesoamerican civilizations, and the European Middle Ages. Students will use the strands of social studies, or GRAPES (Geography, Religion, Accomplishments and innovations, Political aspects of the society , Economics, and Social Struction)to examine societies and happenings across time. Using these strands of the social sciences to study the world will allow students to understand what happened, why events occurred as they did, and what impact the past has had on the present. Hopefully, you as a learner will come to an understanding of the world you live in and on, as well as your role as a citizen of the world.
I have high expectations for every student in my class. The curriculum is designed for success in learning. Students who come to class prepared, complete the assignments with the goal of producing quality work, follow classroom expectations and procedures, and show respect for themselves and others will succeed in social studies.
