“History repeats itself!”, “Geographers never get lost!”, “For the people, of the people, by the people!” “Money makes the world go round!” – We have all heard these sayings at some point in our lives and as have students of classes 4-10. These are all sayings that define the world we live in, how it came to be this way and how it runs. All of this is defined by Social Studies (History, Geography, Political Science, and Economics).

As per the curriculum the Social Sciences have been a part of the school curriculum before Class VI as part of the teaching of Environmental Studies. The revised EVS syllabus has attempted to draw the child’s attention in Classes III-V to the broad span of time, space and the life in society, integrating this with the way in which she or he has come to see and understand the world around them.

Why You Need Social Tuition

Social Studies explains why we live the way we do. Online tuition classes help students understand the importance of social studies as well as answer all their doubts when it comes to the government, wars, money, politics, world leaders, countries, rivers, mountains, power – BASICALLY EVERYTHING! Thanks to the limitless timings, freedom to ask as many doubts as you want and personal attention, online tuition classes help students excel at social studies.

How AMS Teaches
Social Studies

This component has been devised in a way that would help students develop a historical sensibility and awareness of the significance of history. Geography is an integral component of social science. At this stage learners are introduced to the basic concepts necessary for understanding the world in which they live. At the elementary stage, the idea is to introduce students to various aspects of political, social and economic life. This will be done through a preliminary focus on certain key concepts, knowledge of which is essential to understand the functioning of Indian democracy.

How to Make Social Studies Fun!

Understanding the way the world works or even society for that matter can be very dry and tedious. This is why we must make sure that students develop an interest for this subject through interactive and fun teaching methods. Such as the following:

Play Atlas

Atlas is a fun game to play with children – it helps them build their knowledge of countries, cities and states all over the world!

Use Maps

While travelling from one place to another use Maps or GPS for directions and teach students how so they learn to encourage mapping and the work behind it

Timelines

Drawing timelines serves as the perfect visual representation of everything that happened in history. It is a fun activity and helps students memorise dates and events through a visual medium

Mock Parliaments & Mock UNs

These events encourage children to participate in school activities as well as learn the workings of the government by ACTUALLY BEING PART OF ONE!

Use Chocolates and Toys to Explain Economics

This helps children understand the basic principles through things that they love!
