Elementary Social Studies

The Washington County Public Schools elementary social studies program supports the development of responsible citizenship through the study of the social, economic and political systems that support and shape the democratic way of life. Through hands-on activities and cooperative learning groups, students are engaged in critical thinking and problem solving techniques to explore past events and history that has shaped the present world around them. Elementary social studies prepares students to meet the challenge of secondary social studies content and supports literacy development across subject areas.  Washington County Public Schools follows the Maryland College and Career Ready Standards.
