Intermediate Social Studies Vocabulary, Grades 3-5
The resources on this page are designed to support vocabulary instruction in Social Studies 3, 4, and 5. The terms are drawn from the Content Statements, Content Elaborations, and Expectations for Learning in Ohio's New Learning Standards for Social Studies. Memorization of precise definitions is not necessary in most cases, but students need to have a working understanding of the terms and be able to apply them to conceptual understandings.
