As United States residents, it’s important for everyone – children and adults – to know about the world around them. History, geography, politics and economics are topics that we deal with on an everyday basis. Stories about the weather, elections, new laws, job market and stock market all make news because they impact human life in various ways. All these topics and more encompass the subject of social studies.
