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.

Absent students should check google classroom and the teacher connection website for make-up work. It is the student’s responsibility to complete classwork missed, turn in homework or, to request to take a missed test the day of their return from the absence.
Students are expected to complete all assignments and submit them on or before the day it is due. Any work submitted the day after it was due will earn, at best, a score of 60%. Work submitted two or more days after the due date will not be accepted.
Students will receive the number of days absent plus one additional day to complete make-up work.
