Welcome to Mrs. Fountain's Sixth Grade History and Panther Reading Classes.


Please say safe and well during this time away from class.   I will miss seeing your faces each day.  Packets with needed worksheets were sent home on Monday, March 15th.  If you were absent, please pick up work from the front office.  I have left the assignments there for students.  The assignments consist of the continuation of our Asia Unit as well as some review and new learning over geography and map skills.

Turning in work:  Please hold on to the packet of information until you return to school.  If this plan changes, I will alert you.

The following are your assignments.  Without knowing how many weeks to prepare for, I am dividing the assignments into weeks.  Please do not work ahead to the next week.
