In Kindergarten Social Studies, homeschoolers will cultivate a sense of national pride by learning about their role as citizens in their local communities and in a national framework.  Kindergarteners will develop a fundamental understanding of their rights as American citizens, learn how to celebrate diversity, and learn about American traditions and holidays that we all hold dear.  This homeschool course is a fun introduction to what makes America so special and will provide a valuable framework for learning about lands outside of American shores in future courses.
