My Story Elementary Social Studies

The My Story series is an adventure-based social studies course for lower elementary students that encourages families to explore the world together through four nine-week quests that regularly reference family, community, and the church. Book 1, My Story and the World around Me, begins with understanding the place of family life and then slowly expands to include information about regions both near and far. It exposes students to local, regional, and national landmarks within the U.S. and eventually expands to include several cultural, geographical and political features existing in foreign lands. This book includes plenty of interactive lesson material, key vocabulary terms, and worksheets and quizzes for each section of the text. Volume two, My Story my Country my World, exposes students to an expanded journey around the world and lays a foundation for understanding state and federal governments, basic economic and geographical principles, as well as world social and cultural norms. Each of these consumable worktexts contain a steady stream of full-color photos and images, hands-on projects, and text that is easy for young children to read. 408 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
