Social Studies

 

In the grade three social studies program, children learn about communities that reflect the diversity of the world's peoples and cultures. They study Western and non-Western examples from a variety of geographic areas. Students locate world communities and learn how different communities meet their basic needs and wants.

 

Essential Questions ....

 

1) How are communities the same and different the world over?

 

2) How does geography influence a community?

 

3) What causes a community to change over time?

 

4) How is culture reflected in a community?
