Welcome to Second Grade Social Studies!
Mrs. Katherine DiCaprio
The Native American Projects are Awesome!
Great Job Second Grade!
The second grade is currently studying the transition from Native American Culture to Colonial America which began with European immigrants that settling in North America. We are reviewing vocabulary words such as: immigrants, culture, colony, colonists, and settlements. This week we will be reviewing famous landmarks in New York: The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
A Social Studies test is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, May 18th.
This year the second grade will be studying Social Studies from the books "Who We Are as Americans" and Maps, Globes, Graphs. During the year I will assign projects for the students to work on at home that are related to the skill we are studying in class.
Homework assignments will be given periodically. Assessments will be given with enough time to study. I will send home a study sheet for you to review with your child.
I am looking forward to an exciting and fun year with your child as we study and explore the curriculum in Social Studies.
