This downloadable and printable e-book combines and expands lessons from our previous kindergarten and grade 1 curriculum books Beginner Social Studies and First Grade Social Studies.
It is a fun and practical resource originally designed for a homeschooling families. Sometimes, a Christian perspective with Scripture verses is presented, such as in the character education section (although most pages in this social studies book could readily be used in a public or private classroom setting).
At this foundational level, My First Social Studies is designed to help young children to begin to learn how to be independent learners and to think about their role (present and future) in their homes and local communities.
160 pages including the Character Education section of 24 teaching posters (e.g. Be Kind, Be Honest, etc.)
Released January 12, 2021.
Note re: Mapping Skills: This resource only presents very basic mapping skills and so, if you are doing this study with a child in grade 2 or 3, you may wish to supplement it by purchasing Apple Press Map Book 1 or Apple Press Map Book 2 or Apple Press Let’s Explore Canada!
