2nd Grade Social Studies

The purpose of the Second Grade Social Studies curriculum is to introduce the concept of communities, which is defined as a collection of families and individuals who work, live, and play in a particular area. Students will learn to identify communities as groups in the urban, suburban, and rural settings. Through a study of communities the students will learn ideas and skills that can be used to compare their communities with communities throughout the United States and the world.

To teach this we use the Harcourt Brace book titled "A Child’s Place". We also use the Nystrom "Nystronaut" Atlas program.


The following web sites and lessons can be used to teach the concept of community to your students:
