Welcome to 6th grade World Cultures!

Hello my name is Kara Estes, and I teach World Cultures and reading on the team. I love my job and I love teaching students about History! I started teaching at Horizon in 2014, and I am looking forward to another great year!


I went to UNK for my undergraduate, and I'm currently working on my masters in School Counseling at UNK. My husband, Aaron, works at UNK, and we have three children James, Jack, and Avery. We love being outside and playing sports.  I am excited to meet all of you and to begin this exciting school year! Horizon is a great school that I know you will love.


In this class, we will focus on learning about the events of past, and how these events have impacted modern history, and how they continue to impact us still today. 

The units that we will be covering this year are...

Prehistory and Archaeology

Ancient Mesopotamia

Ancient Egypt

Ancient Greece

Ancient Rome

Medieval Europe
