They learn to identify events and changes taking place in the school and local community and classify events as taking place “today,” “yesterday,” and “long ago.”
In the history standards, students identify continuity and change in the different environments around them, including school and neighborhood communities, and identify individuals, events and symbols that are important to our country.Identify people and events observed in national celebrations and holidays. Example: Celebrations and holidays, such as Thanksgiving; Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. Day; Presidents’ Day; Independence Day; Arbor Day; and Veterans’ Day
