in Steem Kids & Parents2 years ago (edited)


Greetings to you dear kids,

It is my pleasure to welcome all of you to our first lesson on social studies.
I am your new social studies' teacher by name @udyliciouz.

At the end of every lessons presented by me, will be followed by homework task in which all our dear kids are expected to participate.

For a start we want to start with the introduction of social studies.

What is social studies?

Social studies is defined as the study of man and his environment. Social studies is the study of man (human being) and his relationship with people around him. It includes all the natural resources in man's environment.

It can be described as the subject that studies the way man lives in his physical and social environment. social studies about how man influences the environment he lives in and how the environment also influences the man who lives on it.

At this point I will be explaining terms used in this context.

Man in social studies refers to human being, that is you and I. It refers to male and female, black or white anywhere in the world.

Man's environment refers to everything including human beings around man. The environment here are of two types, that is physical environment and social environment.


Physical environment refers to those things that are not human being. Examples are, animals cars buildings lands water etc.
all these things can be natural (made by God ) or artificial (man-made).

This means that physical environment are both natural and artificial.
Our natural physical environment consists of things by God e.g trees, animals, water, land etc.

Our natural artificial environment consists of things by man e.g buildings, cars, technologies etc.

Social studies assess man in his physical and social environment as well as assessing the effect of science, technology and religion on human.
The word 'man' here refers to human being that is you and I.

Having known the meaning of social studies, we will be looking at the aim and objectives of social studies.

Objectives of social studies

Here are some of the objectives of social studies

  • Social studies makes you are I responsible citizens.
  • It helps us to understand the importance of hard work.
  • Social studies can make you our dear kids good leaders and followers.
  • Social studies can help as to understand why being honest, working hard, being transparent and cooperating with others in the society important.
  • Social studies teaches us to understand our culture as well as other people's culture.

This diagram shows the scope of social studies

Social studies have related to subjects like geography, economics, anthropology, political science and psychology.

Social studies is an integrated subject because of its many interwoven parts which gives insight into what man is and everything connected to man in his physical and social environment.

Social studies can also be defined as a study of man's life, his interaction with his social and physical environment and his knowledge of science and technology to solve his problems in his environments

Here are some points to show the importance of social studies.

  • Social studies help us to become good citizens that means it educates us on the right type of attitude, values and behaviours.
  • Social studies help us in developing a good sense of judgement and good sense of moral and social responsibilities.
