6th Grade (World Cultures)

Description
This unit bundles the student expectations that provide a foundation for the World Cultures course. This unit is primarily a study of region and culture. Students begin a study of World Cultures by examining how maps are used by geographers and by gaining an understanding of the concept of culture. Maps are the language of geographers and in this unit students are introduced to the basics of that “language.” An understanding of maps is critical for examining the world’s spatial patterns. According to Kastens and Liben (2010), students are not developing adequate map skills; this then hinders their ability to develop spatial orientation, a problem that often follows them into adulthood. Continued development of spatial reasoning is necessary for student success in later social studies courses.
