Mrs. Leighton (Social Studies)

Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies!  This year students will be learning about major historical events that occurred from prehistory to the early modern era.  Key concepts students will be studying include the role of geography in the development of the first civilizations, the earliest forms of government, major philosophical belief systems and technological advances.  Students will be able to make connections to past ideas, concepts, and events that have helped shape the world we live in today.  I look forward to working with the 6th grade students this year.
