Engagement Strategies

Recommended instructional strategies to support the Social Studies Practices, develop critical thinking in the Social Studies, and enhance collaboration, inquiry, and student-centered learning experiences.

In Kindergarten, students continue to build and enhance their understandings of the social studies strands: history, geography, civics, and economics. Students develop an appreciation of American symbols and holidays. Concepts of cultural and physical geography are introduced, comparing the student's community to other places and peoples. Civics provides students with a continued study of the traits and practices of good citizenship. In addition, the basic economic concepts are furthered explored in order to understand needs, wants, and how citizens help their community's economy grow.
