In Social Studies 1, homeschoolers will learn all about how the environment brings us what we need to survive.  Children will gain an understanding of how food comes from farms and is processed and distributed in order to finally end up on the dining room table.  They will learn about transportation networks, how clothing is made, how houses and towns are built, developed, and grown.  They will learn about how to respect the environment and minimize activities that will pollute the earth.
