P.E.G.S. : The Four Themes of Social Studies
"P" is for Political
"Political" refers to things like government or politics!

In World Cultures, we will use this theme to discuss:
Types of Government (Examples: democracy, theocracy, and communism)
Capital Cities
Heads of State*

*A "Head of State" is the leader of a country. Barack Obama is the Head of State for the US.

"E" is Economic
Economics has to do with money

In World Geography, when we look at the Economic themes for a country or a region, we might look at:

Agriculture-What is grown there? What animals do people raise?

Industries- Tourism, clothing, machinery, cars.

"G" is Geographic
In World Geography we will discuss the Geographic theme often!

Climate-Weather, temperature and rainfall

Physical Features- Are there major rivers? What about mountains?

The Social Theme is all about people!

In this class, we will use this theme to look at:


Population-How many people live in an area?
