Lane Hall History and Social Studies

The world gets ever bigger and wider for our Intermediate School students. While receiving instruction in proper use of maps, globes, timelines and research resources, students in fifth grade review American history up through the Cold War period. In sixth grade, the curriculum surveys world history, with special emphasis on Egypt, Mesopotamia, China and Japan. Students also undertake guided research projects and explore historical events and personages through interdisciplinary projects that foster critical thinking skills.
