What is social studies?social studies is when you learn about your history and they tell you what happen back then when a lot of us wasn't born and then they tell you to do your warm up.
Social Studies is an cross-disciplinary subject taught in most American schools. It is defined by the National Council for Social Studies as "the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence." More specifically, social studies covers both the features of our surroundings and the history of people and places.
It covers not just history but also how people live now and how they are governed and how they make a living.
