Social Studies is the study of people and the world we live in.  We will focus on eight major strands of Social Studies.  These strands include economics, citizenship, geography, social studies skills, government, history, science and technology, and culture.  Each strand will teach us something about the world.  As we explore several Social Studies units this year, we will think about how the Social Studies strands work together to help us understand our world.

 

The Social Studies Units that we will cover this year include:

People Build Communities

Communities Have History

Communities at Work

Communities Have Governments

Many Cultures, One Country
