In the early grades, students explore their own families, communities, and the communities of others as they build their historical thinking skills. As the years progress, students conduct more in-depth investigations of peoples in the United States and the rest of the world in order to develop a better understanding of the core areas of social studies: government, economics, geography, and history. Ultimately, it is the goal of the social studies program to help students develop the critical skills needed to be active citizens in our community, our country, and our world.
