Welcome to Seco
nd Grade Social Studies!

Mrs. Katherine DiCaprio

Our trip to Old Bethpage was an interesting and fun journey to the 18th century. The children had the opportunity to meet a blacksmith heating and bending iron to make tools, we saw a woman separating the sheep wool to make yarn, we observed how a spinning wheel and loom works.  We also visited two homes and had the opportunity to see what homes looked like during that time period.

Welcome back!  This week we will continue to study the Native Americans of the Plains.  We will learn about their lifestyle.  How they lived and where they lived.  We will also compare and contrast the lives of these Native Americans with the Native Americans of the Northeast and Southeast Woodlands.

We will continue to work on the Maps Globes and Graphs workbook as well.  We have begun to talk about the seven continents and we are learning that we live on the continent of North America and the countries that are part of North America.  We are learning that we live in the United States of America and the state we live in is New York and that Long Island is part of NYS..   We are learning we live on the east coast of the USA and that the Atlantic Ocean is along the east coast of the USA.

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.
