Social Studies and Life Skills

Playing house, pretending to be the teacher, driving a make-believe car... are all fantastic ways for kindergartners to learn life skills. Playing online games are another super way to learn valuable life skills. Kids today are expected to know more earlier and earlier, so it is wise to get a head start. Life skills include tying, buckling, buttoning, zipping and touch fastening clothing and shoes. Practice makes perfect, so get cracking, or zipping and buttoning should I say.

As students learn social studies content, they are expected to master a foundation in history; geography; economics; government; citizenship; culture; science, technology, and society; and social studies skills. They will understand the importance of patriotism, function in a free enterprise society, and appreciate the basic values of their state and nation. All well rounded online curriculum resources will include these skills as part of their program.
