The focus of 5th grade social studies is on the United States. Students begin with Geography, Native Americans, then study the 13 colonies, the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the building of a new nation. Students learn to explore cause-and-effect relationships; compare past and present events; and make and use timelines, graphs, charts, and maps to interpret historical data. Technology is often integrated, as students use the Internet to facilitate their learning.
