Oklahoma Academic Standard 3. The student will understand that history relates to events and people of other times and places. 

Objective 3.4 Explain that lessons can be learned from the past.

In a Nutshell

One of the fundamental reasons why social studies is vital to a society is the fact that learning from the experiences of historical individuals can provide us with valuable lessons. Students should begin to explore their own personal experiences in which they learned from mistakes as well as successes.
