Marsh Junior Social Science Department is eager to help students
understand the importance of history in their lives - how it has created
their present and how it will impact their future.

This class will cover more time than any other history class; 4 million years to be exact. The sixth grade course focuses on the development of cultures through geographical resources and their ultimate rise to civilizations. Where did they go? How are their discoveries and contributions influencing us today? Through a wide variety of techniques including real and virtual exploration we attempt to uncover some of the past’s greatest mysteries.
