Preschool Social Studies Activities

It's been a couple of weeks since we finished our round up of activities that meet social emotional standards, and since we are heading into the holiday season, now is the perfect time to explore some ideas that meet social studies standards.

Remember, the Standards that I use every day, and am most comfortable with are Ohio's Early Learning Development Standards - you can review them here, however I've found that even if your State's standards differ, many of these activities can still be aligned similarly. I've rounded up some great ideas today!

Domain: Social Studies
Strand: Self
Topic: Historical Thinking and Skills

This standard is less about history lessons, and more about understanding the concept of time (as it pertains to the daily or weekly routine) and personal history.
