Introduction

According to Seefeldt (1977) all of education has a goal of transmitting culture, to the young, but social studies seem uniquely suited to helping young children gain the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values required of them to perpetuate society.

According Seefeldt (1977) social studies is concerned with the study of people and their interactions with others and the total environment. Social studies transmit a way of life while, at the same time, building the skills, knowledge, attitudes, and the values needed to change and improve that way of life.

Children learn social studies as they live, grow, and experience. For example while building houses using sticks, and performing family activities.

Social studies curriculum is based on children’s experiences and on their discovery of the world around them. Themes are planned beginning with the home and then, as children’s experiences widen, the neighbourhood and the community.
