Social Studies concepts and skills are integrated into our literacy block and taught through the use of fiction and non-fiction texts, videos, and inquiries. We use a variety of resources, including Scott Foresman's Passports to World Communities and Engage NY's Common Core learning modules.
Our main focus of study includes:
- Continents and Oceans
- US Geography, History, Government, and Economy
- Cultural Similarities and Differences (Japan, Zambia, Brazil, Spain, and Australia)
- Timelines of Events
