Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies (Minnesota Studies)
MN Studies
Students study Minnesota history and its government, placing the state and its people within the setting of the national story. Grade six features history as the lead discipline but the focus includes geographic, economic and civic understandings. Students engage in historical inquiry and study events, issues and individuals significant to Minnesota history, beginning with the early indigenous people of the upper Mississippi River region to the present day. They examine the relationship between levels of government, and how the concept of sovereignty affects the exercise of treaty rights. They analyze how the state’s physical features and location of resources affected settlement patterns and the growth of cities. Drawing on their knowledge of economics, students analyze the influence of a market-based economy at the local and national levels. They learn about the unique role Minnesota played, and continues to play, in regional, national and global politics.

If you are here for 7th Grade U.S. Studies, the material can be found in Google Classroom. If you are looking for the schedule, I follow the same schedule as Mr. Dobson.

For 6th grade, I am on the Eagle Team. The information below says Coyote but it is current.
