Social Studies Unit 1

Students will learn to describe where they are from, using the familiarity of their home communities to bridge to the new and more abstract concepts of maps and geography on a larger scale.

Students will respond to the Essential Questions:

  • Where are we from?
  • How are these places similar and different?

This six-week unit culminates in a creative travel guide project about the students’ home communities.
