Ms. Abdou's 4th Grade Social Studies
In Fourth Grade Social Studies, we will be covering everything from Native American history and heritage, to the Revolutionary War. We will look at geographical features of the US recognizing the differences in regions as well as man-made vs. natural features and how geographical issues played into the settlement of our nation and the wars that were fought on our own soil.
We will learn about the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and emphasize the powerful and long-term roles that these documents have played in shaping our country and the world.
We will be covering economics and how buyers and sellers rely on each other. We hope to teach students what factors in our economy push us towards or away from war and peace. We will implement personal budgets to assists our students in grasping these issues on a more personal level.
Social Studies is the corner stone in the foundation for our students' understanding of what it means to be a good citizen with a grasp of where we come from and how our actions will shape the future of the world!
