Our Social Studies curriculum is divided into two parts. During our first semester (Quarters 1-2), we will learn about the various regions of the United States. We will discuss landforms, resources, climate, and other exciting facts that are popular in each region. Students will be required to learn the states and capitals of each region, as well as be well-versed in geography/map skills.
The second half of our semester (Quarters 3-4), students will learn about Texas History. They will hear about early people of Texas (Texas Native Americans), Explorers, Settlers, and the events leading to the Texas we know today.
There will be a variety of classroom projects that reflect the topics learned this year.
