I can statements for social studies. These statements were written using the Michigan Curriculum Framework (http://www.michigan.gov/documents/Social_Studies_Standards_122084_7.pdf). They are generic, not state specific, so that people in other states may be able to use them. This documents also has further descriptions and explanations for the strands and standards.
Not every I can statement will be used in each grade level. This is written for later elementary (3-5), so the benchmarks will have to be reviewed to choose the ones specific to your grade level.
How this document is set up:
There is a whole page description of the strand.
After each strand description there are separate pages for each content standard/benchmark. There is a brief description of the content standard and I can statements to use with the students. Each strand is color coded, so standards and benchmarks that fall under that strand have the same colored border.
Each I can… statement card has a code to show the content standard it covers:
(Subject.Strand.Content Standard.Later Elem.Benchmark)
