Students ended their study of ancient Egypt last week by taking a unit test. Over all, most did well, and I think enjoyed learning about this ancient Mideast culture. Beginning next week we will be underway in our study of ancient China. First, we will examine China’s geography, and look at some of its legendary dynasties. China is a country of extremes: the highest mountains, one of the largest deserts, and some of the longest rivers in the world. This subject is new and novel to 6th grade students, but promises to be appealing.
