Social Studies

  • In addition to map and globe skills, our social studies curriculum focuses on the geography of the regions of the United States.  For each region, students will be expected to know the locations of the states within the region.  They also need to know the physical features such as the landforms, bodies of water, climate, and natural resources of the region.  To facilitate this learning, students will be required to do maps for the regions and occasional projects.  Rubrics will be distributed so students know what is expected of them.

    *A highlight of our study is a field trip to Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm.
