The social studies curriculum is vast, and encompasses geography,
world culture,and world history. Students will be exposed to a wide
array of interesting subject matter that will broaden their understanding
of the world they live in.
Lessons in geography graphically illustrate the continents, maps
of different parts of the world, rivers, seas, mountain ranges,
waterfalls and other physical features and landmarks. Lessons in
world culture include profiles of individual countries, flags, food,
clothing, agriculture, tools, military and naval craft, and much
more. The lessons in world history portray famous people, events,
battles and bring a historical dimension to understanding our world.
Countries are introduced individually and cover the major points
of interest such as the capital, the flag the national anthem, noteworthy
geographical or architectural sites, unique foods or clothing and
whatever else is important or special.
Level A students will receive one lesson per
week, Level B will receive one or two lessons per week, and
Level C will receive either two or three social studies lessons
per week. Level C participants receive the added benefit
of having books relating to the lessons at different intervals throughout
the semester. For example, to reinforce the weekly lesson on the
continents, an in-depth book on the continents may be included to
enhance comprehension and to broaden the scope of knowledge.
Regardless of the age level, every student will be amazed by the
total spectrum and scope of information presented in the Social
Studies curriculum. It is a diverse and extremely captivating area
of study that students will be excited about and will always favor.
