God created many people in the world, with different cultures, languages, and religions. These factors change and vary geographically and continuously throughout time. Paul exhorts us to be all things to all people. Social studies give students a chance to learn about ‘all people’. Learning about the world, the different countries with their history and cultures prepares them to make wise choices for their countries and the future.
Students will learn about the history, landmass, wildlife, geography and people of India, China, Mexico, and Russia.
