Students in Wisconsin will identify and interpret past and present contributions of people, places and things within their community and use timelines and graphic organizers to show personal and community events in the order in which they happened.


Students in Wisconsin will define and demonstrate the idea of citizenship and the role of a citizen within the community and explain and demonstrate how various groups within the community develop, enforce and change rules of behavior.


Students in Wisconsin will recognize how the existence of scarcity versus limited productive resources means people must make economic choices and describe the role of money, credit, banking and saving, resources and products, goods and services, and careers.

Behavioral Sciences
