Social Studies - Kindergarten

Social studies centers on our families, our community, and ourselves. Students learn about being members of a classroom and about Synergy’s Agreement System (respecting each other, learning to work together, and taking individual responsibility for our actions). They develop an awareness of the diversity of their families and community through books, discussions, activities with older buddies, and art and hands-on projects.
