FCPS Elementary Social Studies


The elementary social studies curriculum promotes students’ understanding of their families, school, community, state, country and world as they become aware of their role as responsible citizens.

The curriculum provides age-appropriate historical, civic, cultural, geographic, economic, and personal financial literacy knowledge. Activities integrate reading, writing, mathematic, science, physical education and visual art concepts that help students make real world connections with the standards taught in the Social Studies curriculum. Teachers use appropriate instructional activities and resources that allow students to gain a deeper understanding of their role as citizens in a democratic multicultural society.
