Fill your social studies skills "toolbox" with this practical series. Each short book explains vital social studies topics with examples kids can relate to. Books begin by broadly defining the topic (ie."What is Civics?). Lots of questions along the way lend themselves to discussions or journaling topics. The easy-to-follow books are interesting to read and lay a foundation for future social studies coursework in an unintimidating way. Appealing color photos and captions appear throughout the text. Here is an example used in Civics to explain how many laws come about. The book shows a picture of some young adults skateboarding on the street, and the text explains how a law was passed to keep sidewalks safe for pedestrians by restricting skaters to specific skate parks. Those who do not obey the law lost the right to skateboard anywhere in the community for a year. Questions at the end summarize the information and could be used as a quiz. A page with websites provides sources for additional research and a glossary helps build vocabulary. Add these to a unit study, or use them as a springboard for writing assignments. ~ Sara
