CPS Social Science Curriculum:
3rd grade Social Science ClassesChicago: Our City
Students will explore the city of Chicago, past and present.  The lessons will touch on Chicago geography, politics, economics and cultures and conclude by comparing Chicago to other cities around the world.  On the Chicago Sister Cities website there is information on each sister city that can be used when comparing Chicago to other cities around the world.

5th Grade Social Science CurriculumThe Americas
Students will explore North and South America, past and present.  Students will study the geography and history of the Americas as well as the economic, political and cultural development of these continents.  Teachers will also elaborate on Chicago’s connections to the regions through our sister city relationships.

6th Grade Social Science CurriculumCultures of the World
Students will have their first in-depth investigation into the major non-American cultures around the world.  There will be a heavy emphasis on the geography and history of the peoples studied; but there will also be room to explore these cultures today.  These lessons allow the opportunity to include information about the appropriate Sister Cities when looking at North Africa, South and Southeast Asia, Eastern and Western Europe.

See the CPS Social Science 2.0 website for more details.
