5th Grade Social Studies
 
 
 


 This year will be studying American History. We will start with Native Americans and work our way up to the Civil War. We will also cover some basic geography and learn how a government works and what the responsibilities of a citizen are. 
We will be using Studies Weekly as our text source. This comes in a weekly magazine format.
