Social Studies

Our Social Studies curriculum actively engages students in becoming global citizens by using hands-on activities, virtual tours, and research to learn about the world around them.  All students participate in field trips that expand their knowledge of concepts covered in class.  In addition, students in second through fifth grades attend week-long Knowledge Quests and gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of our world and their relationship and responsibility to our world as global citizens.  The Galloway School strives to make the history of the world come alive in the classroom.


Knowledge Quests:

2nd -3rd grades:  Camp Allen

4th grade:  San Antonio and Austin

5th grade:  Williamsburg and Washington, D.C.
