Social Studies Goals and Objectives

The fifth grade study extends the focus to geographic regions of the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America. Students learn about the people of these nations and the physical environments in which they live. As they examine social, economic, and political institutions, students analyze similarities and differences among societies. Concepts for this study are drawn from history and the social sciences, but the primary discipline is cultural geography. Given the swiftness of change and our global information systems, students’ examinations of these concepts must require continuous reference to current events and trends.

The learner will:

  • apply key geographic concepts to the United States and other countries of North America.
  • analyze political and social institutions in North America and examine how these institutions respond to human needs, structure society, and influence behavior.
  • examine the roles various ethnic groups have played in the development of the United States and its neighboring countries.
  • trace key developments in United States history and describe their impact on the land and people of the nation and its neighboring countries.
  • evaluate ways the United States and other countries of North America make decisions about the allocation and use of economic resources.
  • recognize how technology has influenced change within the United States and other countries in North America.
