Social Studies


Social Studies Overview

Social Studies is taught through the use of thematic units of study. The Social Studies curriculum draws from multiple disciplines, including: history, geography, archaeology, sociology, and political science. The program challenges students to broaden their understanding of the world by creating projects, examining current events, and participating in class discussions. Field trips, research reports and an integrated curriculum are used to enhance the students’ social studies experience. In addition to regular classroom work, there are many performances connected to the social studies curriculum. Some of these include: Native American Festival (K/1), Travel Fair (2/3), and Greek Plays (4/5).
