In 5th grade social studies, students learn about a variety of topics about the history and culture of the Americas. In the first quarter, students examine the geological development of North and South America, and the theories of how and when humans first arrived in the continents. The second quarter focuses on South and Central America, including contributions from cultures like the Maya, Aztec, and Inca. In the third quarter, we look at the native cultures of North America. Finally, in the fourth quarter, students will research the effects of the Age of Exploration, when European countries encountered the native peoples of the Americas.
