Second Grade Social Studies

The basis of our social studies curriculum is the building of a peaceable classroom community where children live together in a respectful and empowering way. It involves infusing mutual respect, responsibility, safety, trust, and cooperation into all aspects of the classroom. Students will learn about their community and their world, remember their own personal histories, and explore diverse cultures in America and the world.

The social studies units are COMMUNITY BUILDING, GEOGRAPHY, MAPPING SKILLS, CULTURES, and TIMELINES. The curriculum framework will be project based in which students will generate understanding and competency in each of the social studies content areas.
