Second Grade Social Studies, Second Semester (ESS1112B)

The second semester begins by introducing learners to economics and the role that money plays in every civilization.  They will take a closer look at the economy of the Celtic people.   Students learn the difference between natural, human, and capital resources.  Learners will begin to understand the exchange of money for goods and services.  They will gain a basic understanding of what scarcity is and why it is good that we do not always get everything that we want.  Students will understand these concepts by drawing upon their understanding of the desires/wishes in their own lives.  Students will also learn about desirable human qualities through the use of fables such as “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.”  Learners will look at individuals who have made a difference in the greater community.  Students will learn about Rosa Parks and Susan B. Anthony through short stories.  The end of the course asks learners to examine the diversity of the community they live in.  They will be asked to recognize the different types of people around them.   Students should gain an appreciation for the differences around them and how having respect for others and being honest will contribute to society as a whole.  Learners will follow a step-by-step approach for successfully completing each lesson, which includes storytelling, repetition, projects, arts and crafts, and videos.
