The NYC DOE Passport to Social Studies Core Curriculum was developed by the DOE in collaboration with a wide-ranging group of teachers, historians and cultural partners. It builds on the New York City K-8 Social Studies Scope and Sequence, a roadmap of key standards. 

The Passport helps students think like historians by raising questions, thinking critically, considering many perspectives, and gathering evidence; it also supports students making connections between history and their own lives, and seeing themselves as active members of a global community. It features hands-on activities and a variety of primary and secondary source documents and resources for each unit of study and lesson. 

Students at PS 349 discover photographs, paintings, original songs, maps, websites, technology-based programs, field trips, read alouds, art projects, research projects and other hands-on activities that prepare students to be knowledgeable about the world as responsible citizens.
