Fantastic Job 6th grade! I very much enjoyed the presentations and everyone did a great job. I especially liked the quality of the content presented and the creativity of each group with the final product.

United Nations World Issues Project

Welcome to our United Nations World Issues project! After learning some background information about the United Nations, we took a closer look at some of the problems in the world today. We analyzed these problems, studied what is being done to try and solve them, created some of our own solutions, and now we are ready to share our ideas with you!

We are a sixth grade social studies class with students between the ages of eleven and twelve years old in a truly international school with no one culture dominating.

We have three sections of social studies and each section consists of about twenty students. Within each class students were broken up into small groups of three students for the project. Each group has been researching one problem challenging today’s world and their goal is to share their new knowledge with the world.
