Social Studies 6th Grade - Vanek

Peggy Vanek
Social Studies
Fall 2019
Spring 2020



Once a six weeks, students must bring a current event for Social Studies. This may be in the form of a newspaper or magazine article, or an Internet site. These articles must pertain to Social Studies (economy, government, geography, culture, etc.). This is a TEST grade.

I have created a page for each student in Google Classroom for submission of website articles. Students may copy and paste the website address onto their page in the Google Classroom assignment. There is no need to print the article if this method is used. I will be able to access the article in class.
