Class 06 NCERT History

This year, in Class VI, you will read History. It is part of a bigger group of subjects known as Social Science. Social Science helps us understand the working of our social world.

History will help you understand how this present evolved. It will tell you about the past of the present. History in this sense is an adventure. It is a journey across time and space. It transports us into another world, another age, in which people lived differently. Their economy and society, their beliefs and faiths, their clothes and food, their settlements and buildings, their arts and crafts - everything was different. History can open doors into such worlds.
