Social Studies Power is a unique digital learning environment with more than 100 lessons dealing with history, government, communities, culture, economics, geography, native peoples, and more. The site offers richly varied lessons with instructive multimedia, literacy features, geography basics, and useful assessment tools.
Diverse features combine to provide a well-rounded learning experience for students and an effective instructional tool for educators. The lessons are presented in differentiated versions to meet the varying reading and learning capabilities of upper-elementary students. Read-aloud narration models reading fluency to promote literacy skills. Vocabulary lists and pop-up definitions reinforce the learning of new terms. Animated maps, colorful artwork, video clips, geography games, and interactive quizzes keep students alert and engaged in the content. Critical thinking questions, extension activities, and inquiry projects encourage students to go beyond the lesson text and take an active role in their learning.
Social Studies Power allows students to tour the world’s continents, studying the land, people, and history of various parts of the world. At the same time, links to local resources support social studies learning at the community level. Social Studies Power is more than a curriculum resource—it is an exciting, multi-faceted learning experience for students and educators alike.
