Course Overview: At the beginning
of fourth grade, students will learn about the importance of Social
Studies - why do we study it? Students will also review map skills and
general New Jersey geography, as well as a look back in time at the
Native Americans of New Jersey, the Lenni Lenape Indians.
Later in the
year, fourth graders will study early American history through the eyes
of New Jersey, spanning from the Revolutionary War through the Civil
War, and ending with an in-depth study of immigration including the role of Ellis Island.
