Ms. Dixon's 6th Grade World History Class



Welcome to 6th grade World History!                 

I hope you find the information below helpful. Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions. 



Sixth Grade World History will focus on World History beginning around 8000 B.C. up to A.D. 1500.  We will begin our studies by discussing what historians do and the influences geography has on the way people live.  Next, we will delve into the early ages, starting with early humans, Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, the Israelites, Ancient Greece, Ancient India, early China, Roman Civilization, and the Americas.


Google Classroom: Classes will receive their Google Classroom code the first week in class.


Classwork: Assignments will be posted daily on my Google Classroom for students and Teacher Connection page calendar for parents to view.
