6th grade Social Studies spent last semester discussing civil rights and how different groups of individuals have received rights over time. These groups include African Americans, women, Latinos, Asians, children, and the disabled. Today we take most of these rights for granted but it has taken many years and even decades for minorities to receive certain rights.
We also spent the last several weeks of school looking at money-how much we spend, save, and waste. Hopefully, the 6th graders will learn to start saving more than they waste.
We ended the year bringing awareness to helping others. We had a fundraiser for the local animal shelter and also a car wash during school to benefit one of our own classmates.
