Welcome back to school!! In 2016, the sixth graders learned about the Early People and ancient Egypt. They finished their ancient Egyptian websites before Christmas and have been presenting their topics to their classmates. They did a really good job on this project!
In 2017, the sixth grade students will start to learn about ancient China and Greece. There will be multiple projects, assignments, and assessments they will need to complete while learning about these topics. It will be an exciting rest of the year!
Remember, the directions for the online Social Studies book are on my webpage. If students forget their Social Studies book, they can go online to complete work!

The sixth graders will be working on an ancient Egyptian website project this month. The students will create their own active websites by researching an ancient Egyptian topic of their choice and writing a 12 sentence summary on their topic. They will also choose pictures that relate to their topic to create a collage that will be added to their website. Their final step in this process will be to present their website to the class.
