#2 Culture: Learners will understand how human beings create, learn share and adapt to culture. They will appreciate their role of culture in shaping their lives and the society in which they live. By recognizing various cultural perspectives, learners become capable of understanding diverse perspectives, thereby acquiring the potential to foster more positive relations and interactions with diverse people within our own nation and other nations. Cultural understanding will help learners make informed decisions in an increasingly interdependent society and interconnected world.

#3 People, Places, and Environments: This theme helps learners to develop their spatial views and perspectives of the world, and to understand the relationships between people, places, and environments. Learners examine where people, places, and resources are located, why they are there, and why this matters. They explore the effects of the environment on human activities, and the impact of these activities on the environment. This area of study is crucial to informed civic decision-making about human-environmental relationships.
