The hardcover Student Textbook is divided into 6 units (history, economics, science & technology, geography, culture, citizenship, government, and national symbols) with daily lessons. Students will learn understand the concept of location, region, customs and celebrations, direction symbols and compass rose, maps, globes, and more. Units begin with a song, poem, or primary source that introduces the topic; a vocabulary preview illustrates new terms with photos while a "reading social studies" section provides examples of comprehension skills such as using context and picture clues.
Lessons provide leveled paragraphs for students to read with highlighted new terms and large photographs. "What did you learn?" review questions help to reinforce content. "Thinking Skills" pages provide an opportunity to think through various topics while "Try It!" questions ask children to think critically about the steps shown and brainstorm their own ideas. "Map and Globe Skills" pages provide opportunities to encourage geography and map skills while "Biography" pages provide topically-related, short biographical sketches with photos, maps, and illustrations. Unit reviews assess students' knowledge of the vocabulary, concepts, critical thinking skills, map skills, and content-memory of the unit. Hardcover.

The directions are provided at the bottom of the page, along with a home activity. The pages are perforated for easy removal. Softcover.
