Social Studies (Grade 1) - The Local Community
Grade 1 students will investigate the physical features and community facilities in their local area. Using basic techniques of inquiry and mapping, they investigate how people live and interact within their community. As they learn more about these interactions, students begin to recognize the role that community plays in meeting human needs. By the end of Grade 1, students will describe how people in the community interact with each other and the physical environment to meet human needs.
