SOCIAL STUDIES

The Michigan Social Studies Standards identify content benchmarks for each grade level in four areas: geography, economics, history and civics.
In kindergarten, students focus on themselves and their world. They:
- depict what they look like, care about, feel and can do that makes them special;
- learn about making friends, making choices that help them get along with others and effective ways of solving problems with others;
- investigate the concept of a neighborhood and their place in it;
- explore basic maps that show where they live;
- learn about similarities of people's lives around the world;
- learn about recycling and ways they can help take care of the Earth;
To achieve these benchmarks, students begin to use the processes of a social scientist. They:

Conflict Management: Students at every grade level are taught skills for preventing, managing, and peacefully
resolving conflicts. If students are given opportunities to practice these skills in real life school situations, they become
empowered to take responsibility for resolving the conflicts that naturally occur in their lives.

Conflict Management

SCIENCE
As they investigate the science units of study in kindergarten, students have opportunities to generate questions about their world, make
observations, identify properties, compare and contrast, classify information, describe and explain their findings and understanding. X means the
student explored scientific concepts through classroom activities.
