    The Five Themes of Geography

    Social Studies makes so much more sense when we see how the world around is connected; connected through economic systems, government structures, and people and cultures moving, trading, and swaping ideas, beliefs, and values. The five themes of geography help us examine the world around us. These themes are a starting place to begin our investigation.

    Many 6th grade classes at SMS are doing both a country scrapbook and travel brouchure. We are using the five themes to help us investigate our country so we can become experts about our country.
