Students understand the development, functions, and forms of various political institutions and the role of the citizen in government and society.
Narrative for the Government and Citizenship
At the first grade level, students develop thinking and decision-making skills through active participation as members of their school and neighborhood. First grade students have the opportunities to discuss ways in which people are alike and different and how people around the world work and use resources to meet their needs. Students in grade one learn to explain why rules are needed in groups and learn how to apply rules to different group situations. They are given opportunities to practice citizenship skills through participation in a variety of group activities.
