6th Grade Social Studies Language Arts • Math • Science & Religion • Social Studies Welcome to Minnesota Studies Mrs. Koch's class Overview Sixth graders learn about Minnesota history, geography and culture in social studies. The textbook is Northern Lights Stories of Minnesota's Past, published by the MInnesota HIstorical Society. Summer I hope everyone has a chance to see more of Minnesota's parks, museums, fairs and other attractions. Enjoy getting to know your neighbors, connecting with relatives and spending time with family. As far as school supplies for the 2017-2018 school year, students will need a notebook, colored pencils, part of an expandable folder, pens, scissors & glue. I'll be checking my email over the summer, let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Links The Minnesota Historical Society is offering free MN History Passes for all sixth graders. This means students that complete the necessary forms will receive free entrance to state historical sites. This does not apply to field trips or to families. I think it is wonderful and I've attached the link http://education.mnhs.org/6th-grade-minnesota-history-pass.
