"In essence, social studies is a broad-based exploration of people, how they live, and how they get along with one another.  To that end, the social studies program encompasses all of the other disciplines of the elementary curriculum.  For example, reading provides us with the tools to study and learn about people; science gives us opportunities to understand people and their interactions with the environment; language arts allows people to communicate with one another; and math provides us with the quantitative tools to measure and evaluate our world.  In short, social studies is not an isolated subject, but rather one that can and should be integrated throughout all the academic experiences of children." -- from Much More Social Studies Through Children's Literature by Anthony Fredericks (p.3) (300.7 FrM 2007).
