PYP6 (Grade 6) Social Studies 

The social studies component of the PYP is characterized by concepts and skills rather than by content. Therefore, OurPlanet ensures that a breadth and balance of social studies content is covered through the units of inquiry. The knowledge component of social studies in the PYP is arranged into five strands: 

  • Human Systems and Economic Activities
  • Social Organization and Culture
  • Continuity and Change through Time
  • Human and Natural Environments
  • Resources and the Environment. 

These strands are concept-driven and are inextricably linked to each other. They also provide links to other subject areas of the PYP curriculum model.
