About Course

Social studies examines the relationships between individuals and societies, as well as the development and operation of societies, rather than studying the physical world. These academic disciplines rely more heavily on interpretation and qualitative research methodologies.

Social Studies as a subject is equally important as is English or Math. In fact, even more! Unless children know what the things present around them are, they won’t be able to interact with it properly. In Social Studies subject for Class 5, children get to learn about things ranging from their immediate environment (plants, animals, air, water, soil, food, human body parts, clothes etc.) to their wider environment (neighborhood, school, etc. ). Social Studies includes a variety of environmental topics. Learning these, kids develop awareness about their natural, social and cultural environment.
