Course Format
Course Description

This course focuses on the geography, history, and culture of various regions of our world. Students will analyze regional, physical, and cultural characteristics of places and show how these factors influenced people who lived there and how the people and characteristics have changed over time.

The goal of the course is to better understand humanity, both the past and the present. The course uses the Iowa’s Academic Standards as our guide to develop the content knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in this course.

These instructional materials are available to assist educators in implementing Iowa’s Academic Standards. Curriculum leaders and teachers should review these instructional materials to ensure full implementation of Iowa’s Academic Standards in the local curriculum. Each module identifies standards that are addressed and assessed, and this course creates a year-long curriculum when combined with ILC 6th Grade Social Studies - Semester 2.
