6th Grade Social Studies
The sixth graders are finishing a Plague Simulation game that we started last week. The students are taking on the role of pilgrim or trader and traveling from town to town to see whether they contract the plague on the their journey... They are having a great time playing the game!

The students will have a short test on lessons 5 and 6 after we complete the biography reports.
