Mrs. Price's Social Studies Class

The curriculum for sixth grade social studies is the histories, geographies, economies, and governments of selected countries of Europe, North America, Latin America, and Australia.  The goal of this course is to acquaint middle school students with the world in which they live.

We will focus on four major strands which include history, geography, economics, and government/civics.  Each of these strands is distinguished in the Georgia Performance Standards by the letter noted in the parentheses of the aforementioned sentence (i.e.: SS6H1 where the “H” refers to “Hisotry.”).  This history strand focuses on the historical developments essential to understanding a specific region in the modern world.  The geography strand relates the importance of geography to each region’s developments.  The civics strand examines the political structures in each region.  The economics strand continues to build basic economic concepts and introduces students to the economic development of each region.
