 Social Studies    In Mee Toh School, Social Studies is aimed at developing students to become global citizens, who understand their cultural roots as well as be able to participate in the changing and interdependent global community. It is necessary for students to develop respect for and positive attitudes towards their own and other people's culture. Mee Toh School wishes to develop a sense of responsibility in students towards the environment and a positive attitude towards life-long learning. 

There are different modes of assessment which include teacher-designed written tests, assignments, worksheets, exercises from the activity books, Show-and-Tell and project work will be carried out. 

Resources such as videos and authentic materials are used in classroom teachings so as to enable students to be actively engaged in the construction of knowledge and making connections to the learning content.
