5K History

 

The purpose of Kindergarten history is to introduce the students to our community and then to build outward toward a basic knowledge of the world.  Students will begin by learning about themselves and how they fit into their community.  These concepts will include simple geography and interesting facts about people and the world around them.  Concepts learned will be reviewed throughout the year.
