In the first quarter we study where we are located in this gigantic universe. We learn where the continents and oceans are located, where our country is located, our state, and our city. You can’t study Omaha, if you don’t know where we are to begin with! So we find ourselves!
In the second quarter we look at our roles as citizens. We learn the process of voting. We learn the attributes and examples of a good citizens. We examine how to problem solve. During some classes we have been known to ask ourselves tough questions...ones where the answers aren't easy and there is no answer in a textbook! How's that for 3rd grade thinking!
Third and fourth quarter we will cover Omaha's exciting and rich history. It will be fun becoming an Omaha historian!
