Calvert Grade 4 Social Studies

Students will focus on the geography and history of early North America from the Age of Exploration and colonial America to the American Revolution, and westward expansion up until the Civil War. Lessons employ the use of various historical thinking and close reading skills to investigate multiple sources of information, including primary sources to consider historical events from different perspectives of people at the time. Students will examine how the geographic location and environment of their state have influenced the state’s economic, cultural, and civic heritage through project-based learning opportunities.
