Elementary Social Studies

  • Our Social Studies courses take a personal approach to introducing students to community and citizenship. They’ll learn important concepts and skills related to history, geography, and economics including their role as a citizen in their home, school, and community. Students will go back in time and learn about the foundation of American citizenship, journey to regions within the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean Islands, and dive deep into the history of the state in which they live.

    Remember that these lessons form the base GPS Global Academy curriculum and that full-time teachers will be expected to add to, rearrange, edit, and remove lessons as they design their classroom and sequence.
