unspecified-8

In sixth grade, in addition to math, science, music, Spanish and P.E., we study ancient civilizations from a ‘big history’ perspective (i.e. in the context of the history of the universe from the Big Bang to the present), plus comparative religion, literature, composition and art. We do lots of hands-on activities, analytical thinking, and creative writing, and honor the special sixth grade capacity for both random silliness and contemplation of the human condition.
