    In kindergarten, students will study “Self and Others.” 

    Our Kindergartners engage in structured inquiry to learn about: 

     

    Individual Development and Cultural Identity 

    Civic Ideals and Practices

    Geography, Humans and the Environment

    Time, Continuity, and Change 

    Economic Systems 

     

    These units represent five of the unifying themes of social studies.  Each unit includes inquiries that help students study themselves in the context of their immediate surroundings. Through various activities and read alouds, students will learn about similarities and differences between children, families, and communities and about holidays, symbols and traditions that unite us as Americans. Students will learn about  respect for others, as well as the rights and responsibilities of individuals.
