Social Studies:In Social Studies this year we will be working independently, with partners, and in small cooperative groups. Our focus first will be government including local, state, and federal, and then our focus will be our state, Pennsylvania. We will also be learning map and globe skills. Please remember that the information found in your child"s blue folder will be the information necessary for quizzes, tests, and projects.
