Our focus in Social Studies will be Nebraska and it's history. We will start with prehistoric Nebraska to see what kids of animals lived in Nebraska millions of years ago. We will then be working with maps to determine where Nebraska is on the globe, North America, and the USA map. Along with those maps, we will be looking at landforms.
Once we have a clear understanding as to where Nebraska is, we will be looking at the first settlers in Nebraska.
We will be discussing the Native American culture that is in Nebraska. We will also be attending Native American Days at the Fort Omaha campus. We will be going on this field trip in September. More information will be coming at the beginning of September.
We will end our year discussing the symbols of Nebraska. The state flower, tree, soft drink and many others.
