Social Studies-ES

The social studies curriculum focuses on civics, culture, history, geography and economics. It enables students to gain an understanding of their past and present in order to more productively and responsibly prepare for their future.

Grades 1 & 2

At these grade levels, students investigate people groups and study the various roles people fulfill within groups. Our students explore culture, heritage, customs and traditions, and are taught to relate their studies to real life cultural activities. Students relate these discussions to important events in their own lives.

Grades 3 & 4

In Grades 3 and 4 students have a major focus on the cycle of economics and participate in individual and group activities. Class field trips and experiential learning opportunities help to solidify understanding of the concepts explored and the differences across culture and tradition.
