Social Studies

What will we be learning in social studies this year?

The Social Studies curriculum is broken down into four areas of study. This year we will be studying: Africa, quality of life around the world, South America and world geography. We will be focusing on our role in the world in which we live and the lives that other people our age live in countries around the world.
