Social Studies

    P.S. 85 follows the New York City Department of Education's social studies scope and sequence.  In grades K to 2, students focus on self, family, neighborhoods and communites large and small.  In grades 3 to 5, students focus on the diversity of world communities, the history of New York state and the similarities and differences among the nations in the Western Hemisphere.  We have chosen to implement the trade book program, supplemented by primary source kits, maps and atlases.
