Junior Kindergarten Social Studies

Social Studies is integrated across the curriculum. We follow the Massachusetts History and Social Science Curriculum Framework, which states, "At the preschool and kindergarten level, learning in history and social science is built on children’s experiences in their families, school, community, state, and country. Children listen to stories about the people and events we celebrate in our national holidays and learn why we celebrate them. They also become familiar with our national symbols. The purpose of the preK-K curriculum is to begin the development of their civic identity." Topics covered include: Living, Learning and Working Together:

Experiences in families, school, and broader community.
