Our Social Studies curriculum is guided by the essential questions. The essential questions guide the study of social studies through the content and skill development in the investigative, integrated study of geography, economics, government, and history.
The essential questions:
What does citizenship mean?
How do people support a community?
How does geography impact the life of people?
How does history influence the lives of people?
What are the lessons that can be learned from current events?
First graders use the weekly issue from Scholastic News to learn about current events and interesting things happening in the world around us.
