Social Studies

The Social Studies program at Aspen Academy builds thoughtful, reflective students who understand and value both the history and diversity of our world.

2nd grade students learn how to use chopsticks as part of their Chinese festival.

During the Elementary Years, children begin to understand the world in which they live and the various peoples who inhabit it.

Throughout each year, cultural traditions, history, celebrations, and stories are integrated into the curriculum. As children develop respect for themselves and others, they acquire an understanding of and appreciation for those who are different and are thereby able to live more productively in a multi-cultural society.
