Social Studies - Ancient Civilization

  

"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots."

                                                                  ~Marcus Garvey

Image result for ancient civilizations



     This is a sixth grade Ancient Civilization class. We will cover the origins of man, the revolution of agriculture, and the major Ancient Civilizations of Egypt, Israel, Phoenicia, Crete, Greece, and Rome. Studying the history of world civilizations helps you realize ancient origins are relevant to today‚Äôs issues.

     Adhering to the Common Core State Standards and its college and career readiness principals, lessons will follow the guiding principles and standards for teaching literacy in social studies.  See the link below for the complete document.

     Students will be required to read the textbooks, take notes, study and take traditional quizzes tests.  However, we will often work in groups and pairs and step outside the textbook to use a multi-media approach.  Often assessments will be in the form of debates, skits, interviews and role-play activities.  Students are asked to come to this course with an open mind, ready to work, learn and have fun.
