In Grade 1 Social Studies, our students will explore the roles, relationships, and responsibilities they have as well as those of the important people in their life. Stepping out of the home, they will also investigate their local community, studying natural and built features, and the different areas and services that can be found. They will then start to understand maps and how they can be used to provide directions around where they live. This course is designed to be 50-75 instructional hours.
Curriculum Information: Social Studies (2018)
Over the next year, the VES team will be working on updating some of our social studies courses to align with changes to the curriculum released by the Ontario Ministry of Education in August 2023.
