Social Studies

Students at CES learn about two or three countries a year beginning in the first grade.  The goal of the thematic units is to give students a global perspective and an appreciation and understanding for other cultures around the world.  The units delve into the past as well as the traditions and current cultural qualities of those countries.  Students leave CES with a thorough geographical understanding of the continents, oceans and the various countries that were studied.  From Kenya to Mexico’s neighbors in North America to countries in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America, our students are exposed to diversity and taught to appreciate it.
