Welcome to a new Adventure where we spread our wings and Soar!

“Study the past if you would define the future.”
                                                                        ― Confucius

"We are not makers of history. We are made of history."

                                                -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Social Studies is a wonderful opportunity to examine our world. In social studies we ask questions endlessly. We ask ourselves:

1. Where are we as a world, country, community, neighborhood?

2. How did we get here?

3. Why are things the way they are?

4. How can we learn from the past to make a better future?

 

American Government: How was our government formed? Why was it created this way? Why is the United States considered the Great Experiment? How does our government work and what is my role in this?

U.S. History: We are part of the most powerful nation in the world. How did we get here? How did events in the past shape our present? How do we use the knowledge of the past, who we were as a society (good and bad) to keep this nation strong.

World History: We do not exist in a vacuum. Humanity is a tapestry of cultures, ideas, beliefs and traditions. Our heritage and our beginnings, even if you are Native American, did not start on this western continent. How did humanity create and develop the great civilization, philosophies, and cultures of the past? How do we see the fingerprints of those ancestors separated from us by time and distance in our world today?

Economics: How does money work? What are markets? How do economies work? What about taxes and personal finance? How do I prepare myself for a successful and financially fit future?
