Grade 2:  My Community and Other United States Communities

In the grade 2 social studies program, students explore rural, urban, and suburban communities, concentrating on communities in the United States. The student’s own community can serve as an example for studying about and understanding other communities.  Students study about communities from the perspectives of the five social studies learning standards. Community studies should include content examples from cultures other than the students’ own, and from a variety of perspectives including geographic, socioeconomic, and ethnic. Students continue to learn how to locate places on maps and globes and how different communities are influenced by geographic and environmental factors. They also study about the rights and responsibilities of citizenship in their communities.
