The purpose of this study is to set up an integrated elementary social studies and science program; informal, flexible, and democratic enough to be in keeping with the modern trends of education, and thus broaden the pupils' understanding so that satisfactory adjustments to their environment may be made.

Statement of the Problem 1. How can social studies and elementary science be integrated so as to meet individual needs and promote better human relationship? 2. Should social studies and elementary science be integrated in the curriculum as a means of helping children develop perspectives relative to science as a social force in the modern world? 3. Will integrated social studies and elementary science programs help develop harmonious human relations and reinforce bonds of family life?

Data for this study were secured from questionnaires sent to seventy-five teachers of urban, and rural areas to find methods of presenting the social studies and elementary science in the elementary school curriculum. In addition, periodicals, books, and teacher's manuels or bulletins served as guides to seek trends in procedures for teaching social studies and science in the elementary school.
