Why Learn Social Studies?


Social studies education develops right from kindergarten and into high school to help students understand their place in the world. Social Studies teach children their roles and responsibilities particularly in relation to social and civic affairs. It helps students develop critical thinking abilities, prepares them to participate competently and productively as concerned citizens and teaches them to address societal and global concerns using literature, technology and other identifiable community resources.
