They talk about the weather, and they learn about the sun and the moon. First graders learn to recognize the differences and similarities in plants and animals, and they may do some experiments with magnets. Social Studies In social studies, children learn about their families and how they live and work. Teachers also introduce the concept of “community.” Students learn how a community functions, and they discuss what firefighters, police, doctors, nurses, and other professionals do.
