Welcome to my Social Studies Page!
Social Studies is a general term for four different content areas studied in first grade, including:
- History - people and events in the past that still impact us today
- Geography - the study of land and maps, and how where we live determines how we live
- Economics - the study of how society works together to meet our needs and wants
- Civics - how our community and government works, including how to be a good citizen
I have linked several sites that I personally love visiting, as well as some that I think will be interesting to most first graders as we study the four broad Social Studies disciplines throughout the year.
I hope you enjoy and learn as much as you can, while being inspired to learn even more!
