The unit experiences for the K-12 curriculum, including these for grade 6, are outlined in SO 001 139. These units include the study of the culture, history, geography, and economics of regions of Latin American and Canada.

Overview, objectives, motivational, developmental, and review activities, and content for each of the various sub-units are summarized: 1) Use of Map and Globe; 2) The Organization of American States and the United Nations; 3) Historical Background of Latin America; 4) Mexico; 5) Central American Countries; 6) Northern Countries of South America; 7) the Andes Nations; 8) The River de la Plata Countries; 9) Land of the Amazon, Brazil; 10) The West Indies and the Guianas; and, 11) Exploring Canada.
