Did I Cover This is Social Studies?

In some of the grade levels, some of the Personal Financial Literacy standards are directly correlated to the Social Studies TEKS for that grade level.  Not all of the standards are covered in Social Studies.  This shows any correlations between Math and Social Studies TEKS. The math standards are on the left and the social studies standards are on the right. **4th and 5th grade do not have any connections.
