Welcome to Social Studies!

Hello and welcome to Social Studies!  I believe in providing a safe and respectful learning environment where students can achieve their potential.  We will be working on many skills in 5th and 6th grade Social Studies this year.  In 5th grade, we will be focusing on Tennessee history and understanding how our state played a larger role in historic events.  We will also be  learning about the challenges that faced our nation from the Gilded Age to current times.  We will be researching, learning, and writing about events that impacted our country.  In 6th grade,  we will be studying world history from the beginning of early civilizations through the fall of the Roman Empire.  We also will be researching, learning, and writing about how geography, early history, cultural development, and economic change has impacted our world.
