4th Grade Social Studies

In 4th grade all of our Social Studies topics are through the lens of North Carolina as a state. 
We study the cultures Native American Tribes from our state and focus closely on tribes native to our western region with a spotlight focus on Sequoyah. 
We also study the design and purpose of our State government in comparison to our Federal Government, which was a focus in 3rd Grade Social Studies. 
We study North Carolina's role in several of our country's wars. This includes the Revolutionary and Civil war. 
We complete a thorough and engaging research project on North Carolina lighthouses. 
Throughout the year we also investigate symbols of our State.
