Social Studies Website


As we have studied types of maps, map keys, and latitude & longitude coordinates over the last few weeks, the children have enjoyed viewing the maps at the National Hurricane Center web site.  Many of them have asked for the link so that they could access the site from home as well.  Click HERE to visit the site.  

Our thoughts and prayers are with all who are anxiously watching the path of Irma over the next few days!
