The early years of your child's homeschooling provides the foundation for future learning, no matter the subject. When it comes to social studies, the curriculum you use should guide your child through basic principles of government, geography, history and citizenship. The things your child learns now will impact how he or she sees these subjects in the future. You can continue to provide your child with exceptional lessons by using the myWorld Social Studies: Grade 3 homeschool curriculum.
This material was crafted using educational research about proven teaching methods. However, don't let the scientific approach to curriculum development scare you. myWorld Social Studies is a unique teaching experience. Instead of memorizing dates and data, your child will jump into the passenger's seat of history and government through the age-old practice of storytelling.
The fun and engaging lessons you create using myWorld Social Studies: Grade 3 will help your child progress in his or her education. By the end of the program, your child should be able to:
See the ways cultures reflect their environments. Use a map to locate certain global features, such as the 50 states in the U.S. or the seven continents. Observe the way an environment affects a group of people and the way in which they adapt. Understand that government, rules and laws are necessary for society to exist peacefully. Read important U.S. documents, such as the Declaration of Independence. Recognize past and present U.S. presidents. Define a variety of government systems, including democracy.

Pearson creates education materials for all types of learners. When creating a program, we ensure that the material will be accessible to as many students as possible and as such, we create many ancillary products to fit specific situations to meet a variety of needs. While there are many components to each of our overall educational programs, some of these ancillaries do not meet the needs of homeschoolers, others do not make sense in a homeschool environment and some require an expensive technological infrastructure to deploy. The homeschool product configurations, while selected from a larger program, are complete curriculum bundles designed for your children to be engaged and to thrive, while being mindful of your budget. It is important to note that at times there will be resources mentioned throughout your materials that are not included in your package, however this will not hinder your child's successful completion of the course.show more
