This file follows the new Social Studies Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) for the Sixth Grade Australia Unit. Each standard has a specific powerpoint with the elements that go along with it. All Ppt's have slotted notes with answers. Powerpoints have separate worksheets that go along with the standard with study guides and quizzes for each standard and element. Writing Prompts can be found throughout the unit.
Due to repetition of standards, some ppt slides in Economics and Government are the same from the other bundles, but none of the worksheets and writing prompts are the same.
