Georgia Performance Standards (GPS):Science and Social Studies
The science and health units include topics such as: nutrition, animals, weather and climate, magnets, and sound. These units are also taught through a hands-on child-centered approach. The students explore these topics with experiments and activities that are integrated across the curriculum.The first grade social studies curriculum examines the roles of people working together in homes, schools, communities, states, and countries. Our country’s land forms, American heroes, and citizenship are studied throughout the year. Children’s literature is a large part of our curriculum. We integrate an American heroes unit that studies famous American heroes such as Thomas Jefferson, George Washington Carver, and Benjamin Franklin. We study folktales and legends.
