Social Studies

PS 62 uses the NYC Curriculum Passport as a resource. However, we are currently developing integrated curriculum units that will include social studies and science. We try to make all learning experiences be authentic and so there are many trips involved in the design.

Here are some examples of our activities:

Kindergarten invite parents and families to bring in artifacts and food from their countries as part of their celebration.

Grade 3 will experience three Jazz concerts (from Jazz at Lincoln Center), in our auditorium focused on American Migration in the 1930's and the Harlem Renaissance.

Grade 1 will learn about China and the principal who visited schools in China in 2016, will visit their classes, show them photos, video and artifacts and teach them to do some paper cutting art. Students will also use Virtual Reality to go on a trip to China.
