The Sixth Grade Humanities starts with an examination of the Five Themes of
Geography. Students are introduced how geography has impacted all facets of
our lives. These themes are constantly connected as we move from one lesson
to the next. We then examine the world’s first civilizations. The emphasis
is placed on a thorough understanding of the lessons presented. The aim is
for students to understand the application of concepts, rather than the mere
memorization of facts. The ultimate goal is for students to have an
appreciation and understanding of how the past has influenced the present,
and the relevance of this knowledge to them.
