Elementary Social Studies Curriculum Guide. Grade 6. World Cultures.
Saginaw Public Schools, MI.
One of a series of social studies curriculum guides, this publication outlines a sixth-grade course on world cultures. Material is presented in two parts. Part 1, an overview of the program, contains an introduction, a statement of philosophy, an outline of elementary level scope and sequence, a description of Michigan mandated essential skill and knowledge objectives for intermediate grade social studies, a statement of scope for grade 6, and a list of the 8 units, strands, and goals for grade 6. Each of these units is outlined in greater detail in part 2 and suggestions are provided for the teaching of each. The units included in this program cover individual and social responsibilities, cultural appreciation, study and research skills, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Central America, and cultural pluralism. For each unit, a brief introduction is followed by charts, each listing a particular goal and objective (each tagged to the Michigan state guidelines), resources, and several learning activities.
