My Project

In sixth grade, students learn about ancient civilizations and how the development of various civilizations had a lasting impact on our world today.

Providing students with a variety of nonfiction books, full of images and interesting facts about ancient societies, will bring history to life.

These books help students envision what it was like to live during ancient times, which enriches their learning and understanding of the impact the ancient world still has on us today.

Building a classroom library to supplement our social studies program will allow students to build on their interests and love of learning. Let's make history come to life!
