Happy Thursday!


A Broader View

I'd like to zoom out from our daily schedules and take a brief look at our long-term goal for our children.  Specific lessons need an ultimate purpose, and our purpose is to prepare our children for leadership roles.  Social Studies plays an integral part in this goal through studies in people and events that have shaped our communities, nations, and world.

2013-2014 SOCIAL STUDIES OBJECTIVE

To cover the basics of people, places, and cultures; create a broad timeline of American and World historic events to prepare for further study; to study our roles as American citizens and heritage; to learn about our immediate surroundings through exploration and history; to learn about ourselves by studying our family history and preserving it for future generations.

4 CATEGORIES OF SOCIAL STUDIES

  1. History 
  2. Geography
  3. Civics
  4. Current Events

STAY TUNED...
