GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY

Cultural Studies at the Early Childhood level includes Geography, History and Science.  Through the use of language, especially oral language, and concrete, sensorial learning experiences the child identifies the elements of his world.  He is preparing to understand his relationship to all aspects of the world.  The Geography curriculum helps children to become aware of the beauty and diversity of the Earth.  Through positive, meaningful experiences, the child develops respect for and appreciation of different people and their customs.  She also develops an awareness of the physical characteristics of the Earth through the use of maps, land and water form models and other activities.  Time, an abstract concept, is made meaningful to children through the study of history.  At this level, we introduce the basic units of time through work with clocks, calendars, seasonal explorations and simple time lines.  The goal of the Cultural Studies is to help the child begin to understand and appreciate her role as a citizen of the Earth.  Our planet is presented as a beautiful home to diverse people, plants and animals.  Respect and appreciation for different cultures and their customs is established early in the child's life on order to prevent the development of prejudice and fear.  The child begins to recognize the concepts of past, present and future and to envision his place in history.  He develops a relationship to the planet and begins to comprehend his role as a steward and peace keeper.
