Social Studies

Common Core Standard: Describe how a text presents information.

In the beginning of the week, the students will wrap up learning about the Maurya and Gupta Empires.  After completing the Cornell Notes of these two empires, they will learn about the Zhou, Qin, and Han, three of China’s great dynasties. In groups, they will compare and contrast the government and achievements of each of the dynasties.  In learning about the Zhou Dynasty, they will learn about Confucius.  He is remembered by many as a great teacher who spent much of his life thinking about ways to improve society.  One of his theories about government and society had to do with family.  He believed that children were supposed to treat their parents with honor and respect.  This treatment was called filial piety.  The sixth graders will be learning about the respect towards family first hand with a filial piety project.  On Thursday, each sixth grader will receive a filial piety sheet.  Each day, the sixth graders will be responsible for completing an activity that shows respect towards their parents.  The project must be complete by Tuesday, March 19th.
