Social Studies



Social Studies is the study of human society and its past. Through our lessons, we will encourage your children to not only strive to understand the history of America's past, but also how it impacts us today, and how is connects with other events around the world. Through all of this, we push our students to gain perspective of the different people and cultures around the world and throughout history.
  
Topics we will cover include but are not limited to: 

Exploration of the "New World"  and The Great Exchange
Colonization and Settlement
Slavery and its Impact
Tensions between Colonists and Britain
The Declaration of Independence
The Revolutionary War
The Constitution
The Bill of Rights
