Our Social Studies Alive! programs are designed to help students master essential skills and knowledge. Every unit includes primary sources and inquiry-based projects to help students develop critical-thinking skills.
Each lesson begins with a preview activity that helps students build background knowledge and ends with an authentic learning activity that encourages students to apply their own voice to demonstrate what they have learned.
Whether you have 15 minutes or an hour, make every minute count with our ready-to-teach lessons and activities. Engage your students with a story, encourage your students to come up with their own perspective during an inquiry project, integrate language arts into social studies through a variety of literature and writing tasks, or combine features to create your own approach to instruction.
