If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday.- Pearl Buck
Welcome! It is going to be a great year! In 5th grade we are going to learn all about our great nation. From the early life of the United States all the way to how the United States interacts with the world, including the Revolutionary War, Civil and the World Wars. In 6th grade we are going to be learning all about our world, beginning with the earliest civilizations, and then specifically Egypt, Israel, Greece, India, and Rome. We will also explore, Medieval Europe, Japan, Africa and China, as well as the Renaissance, Reformation and the Enlightenment.
History is a kind of introduction to more interesting people than we can possibly meet in our restricted lives; let us not neglect the opportunity. ~Dexter Perkins
