    What is KinderSocialStudies SET TWO?

    KinderSocialStudies Curriculum SET TWO is an engaging social studies curriculum with young learners in mind! KinderSocialStudies encourages young learners to think “outside the box” and prove their thinking through hands-on and engaging learning experiences. KinderSocialStudies is based upon five units: Then and Now, Celebrations, Leaders, Family and Inventors. Each unit is broken down into 10 lessons and each lesson can take from 1-2 days to complete. The units cover at least two weeks of instruction. Each lesson plan has the listed objective, “I can” statement, vocabulary, detailed activity lesson plans and all necessary student follow-up practice sheets.

    KinderSocialStudies encourages a daily routine, but please know that as the teacher you can adjust the lessons and make them work best for your daily schedule and time allotment. Within each lesson the students will partake in a quick lesson opener, whole-group skill lesson, and a follow-up task. Please note that all student follow-up practice sheets can be shrunk and placed into a student journal. All of the follow-up sheets are also differentiated so that you can use these units anytime during the school year, and they will be applicable to your writers or nonwriters. You can also choose to have students track their daily activities in their journal with or without the included response sheets.

    - 2 weeks of lesson plans per unit (10 days of instruction)

    - Daily differentiated practice sheets (can be used for writers and non-writers)

    You can take a look at Units 1-5 of KinderSocialStudies HERE

    What about the standards?

    There is no one set of standards for social studies. This unit has been based upon the compilation of many state standards. Those state standards were cross-checked to verify the most common occurring standards. If the strand appeared in first grade, the first grade standard was met within the unit as well. If you have specific standards questions please reference the detailed lesson overview list above and/or email

    Ah, I love this but I teach PreK/First/Sped

    You will notice that this packet is marked as Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade! This is not something I do often or lightly! I find it very frustrating to purchase a packet and it not be grade level appropriate. I have included two differentiated versions to all practice sheets. These two versions work for non-writers (coloring) and writers (writing 3-4 simple sentences). Please note that NO student materials and NO teacher materials have the "KINDER" name on them so you do not have to worry about this! As teachers we are the only ones to ultimately make the decision as to know if it will work for our kids, if I can help with this decision please let me know! Please note that I have included alternate unit and bundle covers for these units. One version says 'FirstieSocialStudies' and one says 'Social Studies'.
