Students will continue to develop map skills and demonstrate basic economic concepts that were learned in previous grades. Students will also identify a number of famous Americans who have worked to improve the lives of fellow citizens. Finally, students will learn that the United States is a land of people who have diverse ethnic origins, customs, and traditions, who make contributions to their communities, and who are united as Americans by common principles.
