Social Studies 2 (Hybrid)
Through a cross curricular and banded standards approach, students study how history has a real impact on how we live today. Discover together that there are real historical answers to questions such as: Why did castles, knights and jousting tournaments fade away? Why do Americans use inches instead of centimeters? Why aren't there very many Kings and Queens in the world anymore? Why do children study Math and Science? Why do people from different cultures tend to view the world so differently? Go way beyond Europe. Our purpose is not simply to trace the roots of Western civilization, but to acquire an overview of how civilizations have developed all over the world. This means Europe, the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, Australia and Africa.
