General Info Links NY Links

General Info:

We study New York State for social studies this year, including its history, geography, peoples, culture, and symbols. We do projects and research, use NY Studies Weekly, make foldables and do other notebook activities. We learn 64 major points on the NY State map. Using songs, we learn all the presidents in order and the states with their capitals and abbreviations in goegraphic order. All projects will be done in class. There is no homework, tests, or quizzes in social studies. Therefore, in social studies, classwork is 100% of the overall grade.
