Social Studies

 

You should be checking your Google Classroom daily for day-to-day social studies information! 

 

The emphasis of our 5th grade Social Studies curriculum is on Geography.  In our first unit of study, we will focus on maps. We use maps, globes, and other geographic representations to organize and analyze information about people, places and environments in a spatial context.  Knowing how to use geographic tools can help us make more informed decisions about how/where to live.

  

What is geography? Why do we study geography?

What is a map? What is not a map?

How do geographic tools and technologies pose and answer questions about spatial distributions and patterns on Earth?

How can maps tell me more about myself: where and how I live?

How can I use maps to construct an argument?
