Social Studies

Students have the pleasure of studying social studies with Mrs. Lee. Throughout the year, she will open their eyes to history’s lessons and how it has shaped our identity.

In September, students celebrate Constitution Day learning about the Massachusetts Constitution and the Bill of Rights. This topic is revisited later in the year when students study the three branches of government in greater depth. Early in the school year, students learn about the pre-Columbian Aztec and Maya civilizations. This, then, opens the door to a major unit on the Age of Exploration.

A major focus of study in Mrs. Lee’s class is the founding of the 13 original colonies. Students explore the settlement of the northern, middle, and southern colonies and their eventual war of independence from Britain.
