Welcome to Social Studies on the Explorers Team!
This year is going to be an exciting adventure as we explore the history, civics & government, geography, and economics of the countries in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Russia!
Each day we will use a variety of resources through technology to learn more about the many countries that we cover, along with current events happening in the U.S. and around the world.
You will also have the opportunity to meet and learn from several exchange students from many different countries that I work with as well! Last year my 6th graders Skyped with me live from Rome, Italy in November, and this year you will have the chance to do the same thing while I am in London, UK for five days!
We do many fun activities throughout the year that help you learn about our global community around the world.
Use the link to Google Classroom to access work for the day. You can watch CNN 10 on any device-cell phone, computer, Chromebook, etc. Record your notes for the day on a piece of paper if you do not have your notes with you.
