SSED01: Social Studies 4 (2022)

Grade 4 students engage in the study of United States geography as it relates to the regional cultural, economic, and political development of the United States. This approach supports in-depth inquiry through the examination and evaluation of multiple sources and allows students to explore regions of the United States supported by the disciplines of history, civics, and economics. The study of geography will culminate with students applying their knowledge to the geography and history of DoDEA regions. Students will examine the history of DoDEA using primary and secondary sources. By developing and engaging in a service project, students will promote the preservation of DoDEA’s history. After identify the virtues and character traits held by Medal of Honor/Citizen Medal award recipients, students will research a chosen individual and explain how the recipient exemplified the values of the recognition.
