5th Grade Social Studies will largely involve a survey of American History. The year will start with a chapter about US/North American geography, regions, etc. to establish a base of knowledge and reference that will be useful as we proceed through the historical chapters. Each chapter will involve note-taking, relevant vocabulary word study, a predominantly in-class individual/group project and a summative assessment over the notes/vocab with study guides provided. Homework assignments may also occur during a given chapter.
