Students at Galveston schools learn, through their Social Studies curriculum, how the world around them has developed. First the students learn about the development of their community, then they expand this by studying the vast history of Texas. This includes the battles that it fought with other countries, and the United States, to become a part of this country. Students also find out about the United States, from the time the New World was colonized, through the wars that led to its independence through the struggles it has today to remain a strong country.

Chalk Talk: Practicing Math at Home
Whether a child enjoys mathematics or sees it as a waste of time, there are ways that parents can help each of these children out at home. Remember, no matter which idea is utilized, keep a positive outlook when doing math, and the child will likely inherit this outlook. Look for ways that math is used throughout the day, such as when shopping and comparing prices, or when counting out change. Even if a child is assured that they know how to answer a math problem, ask them to explain how they did this. The main idea is to have them talk about their problem-solving. This helps them to make the subject more active. Look for resources online. There are several places that have online activities that are fun, yet educational. With whatever activities are chosen, be sure to show enthusiasm.
