What is 2nd Grade Social Studies Curriculum?
2nd Grade Social Studies Curriculum is an engaging social studies curriculum with young learners in mind! 2nd Grade Social Studies encourages young learners to think “outside the box” and prove their thinking through hands-on and engaging learning experiences. 2nd Grade Social Studies is based upon five units: Government and Democracy, Historical Thinking, Geography, Cultures and Economics. Each unit is broken down to 10 lessons and each lesson can take from 1-2 days to complete. The units cover at least two weeks of instruction. The lesson plan has the listed objective, “I can” statement, vocabulary, detailed activity lesson plans and all necessary student follow-up practice sheets.
2nd Grade Social Studies encourages a daily routine, but please know that as the teacher you can adjust the lessons and make them best work for your daily schedule and time allotment. Within each lesson the students will partake in a quick lesson opener, whole-group skill lesson and the students will take part in a follow-up task. Please note that all student follow-up practice sheets can be shrunk and placed into a student journal. You can also choose to have students track their daily activities in their journal with or without the included response sheets.
