2nd Grade Social Studies introduces students to basic government, citizenship, history, economic, cultural, and geographic concepts. This is accomplished as they investigate communities, neighborhoods, holidays, symbols, monuments, the continents and oceans, and the virtues of the free enterprise system. The course begins with a look at rural, suburban, and urban communities. Students then learn about local neighborhoods and the people who live and work in them. The concept of neighborhood expands as the course progresses to include the state, nation, and world. Along the way, students will meet good citizens who helped their communities, including John Hancock, Sojourner Truth, and the Navajo Code Talkers.
