Learning Resources for

6th Grade


Sixth graders learn to analyze what they’re reading, summarizing plot and themes, and can write longer assignments that may take a long as a week. They’ll also learn to do math with fractions, solve equations with ratios and rates, use negative numbers, solve algebra equations with a single variable, understand basic statistics, and they’ll go deeper into geometry, calculating surface area and volume. Search our database of books, educational videos, educational apps, online classes, and more for help with any of these subjects or for sixth grade social studies, history, or science.
