Today I will review this entire year for 6 grade history and then what I liked and disliked about the class.
We first learned about Creation, The Flood, and the Tower of Babel. Then moved on to Abraham and after that we did Egypt and how Abraham’s family and the Israelite eventually settled and fled Egypt. Later we also studied the divided kingdoms of Israel and Judea.
Next we learned about the empires of Assyria, Babylon, and Persia.
Then we looked at Greece and its history and culture. We also looked at Alexander the Great how he conquered most of the known world and then died at the age of 32. Some notable points during for the Greeks include the Persian wars and the battle of Marathon.
Then we studied the most powerful empire every, Rome. We also studied their culture and government and the emperors. Some of the notable moments of the history of Rome are the year of four emperors, the splitting of the empire into two, and the fire of Rome.
We then quickly look at North America, South America, Asia, Africa, and Australia and how these cultures weren’t has advanced as the rest of the world since they had to travel to get to those areas. But they also had some very impressive stuff like the earth mounds made by the Nazca Indians.
I liked most of this class this year for example I like the wars we learned about since that is very interesting to me. The only thing I didn’t like was that it wasn’t set in the modern period. Which I like to learn about because of WW2 and other wars that I find interesting.
One thought on “End of the Year Review”
Just so everyone knows this is my last 6 grade history class. If at least three people want me to do more history then I can do that just write in the comments if you want me to.
