This course builds on basic concepts introduced in kindergarten. The first two Units will teach students to use geography tools to interpret maps and globes. The focus then shifts to government. Learners will investigate how the United States was formed, survey the structure of our government, and identify and analyze the meaning of national symbols. Students will next study the role of states before learning about citizenship. Unit 8 will introduce learners to patriotic, community, and family customs and traditions. Students will then investigate basic economic concepts including goods, services, choices, spending, and savings before concluding the course with an examination of how technology changes the way humans work and play.
