5th Grade
 
 

The Social Studies curriculum in the fifth grade is designed to provide students with an understanding of the basic narrative of US History from colonization through the Civil War.  Through active learning experiences that engage student interest through developmentally-appropriate and meaningful lessons, fifth grade social studies promotes students’ social/emotional and cognitive growth.  Students consider various interpretations of key events and/or issues in US history while exploring different experiences, beliefs and motivations of different groups of people.  Students also explore the roots of American culture and manner in which it was built from different traditions and practices to create basic ideals of democracy.
