Welcome to Grade 6

Social Studies

Our next unit provides more background on what geography is. We will be investigating Physical Geography, which encompasses the natural systems of the Earth. This includes the rotation and revolution of the Earth to the sun, including seasons of the year and climates around the world. We will also examine the layers of the Earth and natural disasters that affect land and oceans.

The last period of the day for all grade 6 students will be writing with their homeroom teachers. We will begin the year doing just that - writing. We' ll look at how we get ideas of what to write, strategies to develop those ideas, and ways to develop our "voice" in writing. We will also develop skills in narrative, informational, and argumentative styles. Vocabulary, editing, and revising will all be intertwined in the class.
