Elementary Social Studies Curriculum


  1. Social Studies helps students better understand the world in which they live, and in the process, understand themselves as individuals.
  2. Social Studies allows students to gain perspective and learn to see a bigger picture.
  3. Social Studies teaches students that they have a right and a responsibility to think for themselves.

Explanation of Standards

Yukon Public Schools Social Studies curriculum is based on the Oklahoma Academic Standards for Social Studies (OAS-Social Studies).

The OAS-Social Studies are coherently and developmentally appropriate standards for kindergarten through grade twelve developed by professional educators and approved by Oklahoma educators.  The standards define what skills students are expected to master in a specific course.  Yukon Public Schools uses these standards to guide curricular decisions.


The Oklahoma State Dept of Education will not give any Social Studies or History assessments this year.
