Fourth grade social studies is all about New York State! We will be studying the geography and how it affects the people who have lived here and who live here now. We look at how the first people of New York and the early European Settlers used and modified the environment to meet their needs and wants. We'll follow the time line of history from the early Native American Indians to 19th Century immigrants. Along the way we will read many documents in order to investigate and discovery the history of our great state. Documents include non-fiction text, biographies, historical fiction, maps, photographs, works of art, charts and diagrams. Every Friday we'll study current events in our Scholastic News magazine.
