At NTLA Social Studies is more than just studying maps and state symbols. Students build a foundation in history, geography, economics, government, citizenship, culture, and science, technology and society. In Pre-Kindergarten students will begin by exploring the relationships between themselves, their home, family and classroom. They will build onto those relationships as they progress through levels into more complex studies of their community, state, nation and the world. Students will study important events in history as well as significant individuals that have impacted the world. As they progress, students will gain a greater depth of understanding in complex issues surrounding our society as well as using critical thinking skills to analyze historic events, government, economics and culture.
