Oak Meadow’s sixth grade social studies curriculum focuses on ancient world civilizations, and provides the foundation for an integrated experience that weaves together the history, geography, literature, government, and art of ancient cultures. Students engage in critical and independent thinking by exploring opposing viewpoints and writing from the perspective of different cultures and time periods. Art explorations include sculpture, drawing, calligraphy, mosaics, marbling, costume making, and mask making.
In life science, students study plant cell division and reproduction, plant classification systems, invertebrates and vertebrates, animal life cycles, ecosystems, and the human body. Emphasis is placed on using the scientific method to help students analyze their findings and to make connections between the overarching themes of the course. Students develop skills in objective observation and accurate recording of data.
