In grade 6B, we have learned or are currently learning about the following:

- Religion: Theme: Psalms, God’s Revelation, God’s Creation, God’s attributes. The students recently completed Chapter 2 and completed the chapter test on Friday 11/3.  Students have completed a number of beautiful projects including, Psalm 23 writing prompt, Psalm 23 comic strip/meme, God’s Creation bookmarks, and an All Saints Day activity which students chose a Patron Saint to research to write about it and create an illustration.

We will be beginning Chapter 3: “People Turn from God” next week.

- Social Studies: We finished Chapter 1 – Early People: The Paleolithic Stone Age which included learning about the Neanderthals, Homo Sapiens and early people’s forms of technology. Students recently took the Chapter 1 Test and were assigned an essay on the Essential Question “What are the consequences of technology?” which was due on Monday 11/6.

We recently started on Chapter 2  – Beginning of Civilization. This chapter includes learning about the Neolithic Agricultural Revolution. In the next few weeks, we will be working through the rest of Chapter 2 which will include homework assignments, a quiz, a project, and a Chapter test. In addition, we will be touching on the history of Thanksgiving.

Students will also be introduced to their Current Events assignments next week which will be assigned every 2 weeks.

- Vocabulary/Spelling: Students are assigned weekly spelling/vocabulary packets on a particular topic on a bi-weekly basis. The packets are distributed at the beginning of the assigned week and include both spelling and vocabulary portions of work. The first week consists of the the spelling portion of the packet which is due that Friday followed by a Spelling test.
