What exactly is Social Studies? Is it History? Is it studying different cultures and community helpers? I think it’s a little bit of all of that!
The Webster definition of Social Studies is: various aspects or branches of the study of human society, considered as an educational discipline.
I believe it’s studying different cultures and people, languages and how society works in general. It is very broad and you can be creative with it.
