Another important piece of our curriculum is Social Studies. In first grade, we focus on concepts relating to home, school and the community. Again, social studies content is integrated into our language arts. The units are described below.
- Time for School - groups, citizenship, authority figures, rules and laws
- In My Community - neighborhoods, communities as part of a state, country, and continent, customs and traditions
- Work! Work! Work! - jobs, goods, services, needs and wants, spending and saving
- Our Earth, Our Resources - map skills, landforms, bodies of water, natural resources
