First Grade Social Studies Curriculum Notes*:

**********************************************************************

Special Notes:

***The New Social Studies standards are heavy on Inquiry-Based skills. The lessons in this curriculum are designed to put the learning in the hands of the students while the teacher is the facilitator; therefore, they are rigorous.***

***Due to the rigor of the lesson design (since they are inquiry-based and student-centered) this curriculum would be ideal to implement second semester.***

***The tasks are editable to fit your students' needs. They do not contain fancy font or clip art due to the fact they are editable. See below for lesson details.***

***This curriculum can be used as is, or can supplement your existing curriculum. Please note, you will not find traditional tests and worksheets with this product. This package contains tasks and lesson sequences that are for teachers ready to try inquiry-based learning. Unit plans offer quick snapshots of lessons, while the detailed lesson plans give an in-depth look at the inquiry-process and facilitation tips for teachers. See below for each item included.***
