Fourth grade students apply their growing academic skills and knowledge to an exploration of North Dakota and its relationships with regional, national, and world communities. Students are beginning to develop a more refined concept of time and can begin to deal with cause-and-effect relationships and decision-making processes, such as identifying problems and considering alternative solutions and their subsequent consequences. Students trace the historical periods, places, people, events, and movements that have led to the development of North Dakota as a state.
