Elementary Social Studies

As citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society our students learn to take the initiative in making informed and reasoned decisions to promote individual character and peace. Integrating Social Studies concepts from our Language Arts program, students engage in research projects and critical thinking based on these ten Social Studies themes from the National Council for the Social Studies Standards:

  • Culture
  • Time, continuity, and change
  • People, places, and environment
  • Individual development and identity
  • Individuals, groups, and institutions
  • Power, authority, and governance
  • Production, distribution, and consumption
  • Science, technology, and society
  • Global connections
  • Civic ideals and practices
