Social Studies

In fifth grade social studies, students learn about the history of our nation and state. Through units of study that are sequenced chronologically according to U.S. History timelines, students read texts, conduct research, and complete culminating activities that require them to read, analyze, write, and use technology. Field trips offer students on-site experience as they tour the state Capitol to learn about government, and hike trails on Petit Jean mountain to pay homage to our state’s past. These experiences provide a relevant connection between our past and present.
