Welcome to 6th grade Social Studies. 
 
You may access your Social Studies textbook online! Click here to learn more!
 
Many assignments are linked to this site. Click on the blue words to access those specific assignments. 
 
 
 
 Distance Learning will be provided by Mustang Public Schools starting April 6th. There are two S.S. assignments for each of the weeks provided. I will be adding enrichment activities for all of my students on Google Classroom. Also, I highly encourage students to use the online textbook (if they have access) to read the chapters over South America. This is only time in school that they learn about this area of the world. I am very disappointed that I will not have the opportunity to teach it this year. As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns via my email address-
