Second graders have the opportunity to explore the wider world, as they discover how the choices we make in Canada can impact other countries. They will also continue their exploration of communities by travelling across Canada, and diving into the past! Each kit is designed to integrate the Modernized BC Curriculum Core Competencies: Communication, Creative and Critical Thinking, and Personal and Social Skills/Knowledge.
Content areas explored in second-grade social studies include: Local Actions Have Global Consequences and Canada has Diverse Communities. Each kit also integrates concepts in numeracy, literacy, art, technology, and design thinking! Feel free to complete kits in whichever order meets your family’s needs.
Social Studies kits are designed to be completed over a period of 6-8 weeks depending on the number of activities selected. Each second grade social studies kit is divided into sections based around driving questions. You will have the opportunity to work through each kit section by choosing your own materials, projects and activities to create a unique learning experience for your child.
We have worked diligently to choose an array of exciting learning opportunities for every learner! The materials, projects, and activities contained in the kit have been carefully selected to address the big ideas, competencies, and content of BC’s Modernized Curriculum.
