In this class, we will be exploring the Western Hemisphere! We will begin the year by focusing on geography skills such as latitude and longitude, map reading skills, and physical features. Our next unit will focus on the indiginous populations of Canada and Alaska. After that, we will turn our focus to Mexico, Central America, and South America where we will study the Ancient Maya, Aztecs, and Inca. Our next unit of study will be the exploration of the Americas and we will finish the year by studying the Western Hemisphere today. I love the 6th grade curriculum and I am looking forward to sharing it with my students this year!
