1st Grade-Families and Schools

    In first grade, students continue to explore the social studies disciplines of history, geography, civics and government, and economics through an integrated approach using the context of schools and families.  This is the students' first introduction to social institutions as they draw upon knowledge learned in kindergarten to develop more sophisticated understandings of each discipline.
    Instruction is based on Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations.  Instructional support resources include a student text, All Together (Scott Foresmann 2008), related trade books, leveled readers, maps, globes, and Smart board activities.
