History is best learned through the medium of storytelling. The story format helps students understand and retain more as they personally engage with the stories of our past and learn the impact that our past can have on our future. This is accomplished through a combination of print and digital instruction that integrates students own stories with the history being studied. The printed portion is the Student Worktext. I have a sample of grade 5B open while writing this and the basic chapter layout is in six sections: myStory Spark, myStory Video, the lesson pages, a study guide, review and assessment, and myStory Book. MyStory Spark encourages students to consider an important concept from the chapter ahead and write a short opinion piece based on their experiences and knowledge. The myStory Video section features a three-page story that connects the history discussed in the chapter to real life and lays a foundation for discussion and critical thinking activities. The lesson section is written directly to the student and includes support for students in the younger grades who are still learning to read well. Throughout the text you will see vocabulary words highlighted, big ideas summarized, and many small activities that turn this text into an interactive student worktext. While many textbook approaches simply show data, charts, and pictures to students reading the pages, students of this course engage with the text by actually writing the captions for the photos, completing charts and diagrams using the information from the text, creating posters to illustrate ideas, and answering quick questions about maps and pictures (to name just a few of the interactive activities). This is in addition to the Got It? and Try It! sections that ensure the students are understanding the text and able to apply the knowledge they have retained. The Study Guide and Review and Assessment sections provide summaries and questions for each lesson within the chapter. The final section of each chapter is myStory Book. This unique feature uses a free online tool to help students write, illustrate and publish their own story online, using the history studied as a launchpad for ideas. Students can then obtain actual printed copies of their book for a fee.

The online resources include: myStory Video and the Teacher Resource Library. The myStory Video contains the video version of the story that students read at the beginning of each chapter like a recorded field trip. The Teacher Resource Library contains a wealth of helpful resources for the teacher in an easy-to-use drop-down menu tree: a full teacher guide for each chapter with lesson plan summaries; podcasts on teaching the subjects at hand; editable copies of student worksheets; editable tests for each chapter, with answer keys; hands-on activities; leveled reading lesson plans; and other general resources such as graphic organizers, maps, and correlations to national standards. Answers to the student pages and assessments can be found in the eText Teacher Edition or more conveniently under each chapter or topic section. Please note that some of the online content referenced in the program may not be accessible to homeschoolers. ~ Zach

I wanted to continue my child's exposure to United States History that they started last year, as grade levels 5 and 6 are really set to complete the total exposure to the founding history, to modern day.

Since last year I wanted to try it, but I decided that this year I need it to buy a social studies' book in color. I haven't seen some much reviews on it, but I went to the content and it added interested information. Plus, the bundle will help me to design my daughter's lesson plan better.

Why does the 6th grade book start at page 300? It starts with Civil War. Where is the previous book to this one?
A shopper on Dec 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The Grade 5 and Grade 6 courses of this series cover all of American history. However, they are divided because state requirements for these grade levels differ. Some cover American history all in one year and will use both courses in one year. Then, on the alternate year, they cover state history. Other states divide American history up and cover one half each year. This publisher tries to provide the courses so they can be used in accordance with various states' requirements.
is this the 2018 edition?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure but was disappointed that it is really a 5th Grade book not 6th according to sku and even thoughh it says “ my world “ it is US history not world history.
