Helping Your Child With Social Studies/History

Whether your school calls it social studies, social sciences, or history, it is a vital part of your child's education. Social studies covers ancient history, including Egypt, Greece, and Rome, as well as American history. This is where your child learns how our government works, what it says in the Constitution, and other crucial information to being an active and informed citizen.
