This course introduces students to their place in the community and their responsibilities as members of society. Great figures in U.S. history such as Pocahontas, George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln are a focus. Students will also learn about everyday heroes, the responsibilities of pet ownership, the importance of rules, table manners, and eating well. Students will practice retelling stories by recording audio, orally, or by writing. They will learn how to use details and basics of narratives. Students will be taught to read maps of the U.S. and the world. They will learn about symbols of the U.S. such as the American flag and the eagle, as well as holidays — with a particular focus on Thanksgiving. Another focus is currency: What money is, how money can be spent, the power of buying locally, and the difference between wants and needs.
