myWorld Social studies is a comprehensive K-5 social studies curriculum designed to lay the ground work for civic competence, so that students develop the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to be active, engaged, and responsible citizens, myWorld social Studies helps students become actively engaged in social studies content through experiences that personalize instruction and make learning meaningful as well as fun.

The heart and soul of myWorld Social Studies is the myStory System. We began with the world's oldest educational technique - storytelling - and applied the oldest educational research to create a ground-breaking approach to social studies instruction. We connect to students' emotions through stories, preparing them to learn, focusing on social studies content while reinforcing literacy instruction. Meaningful discussion questions and videos related to the questions will keep your child interested and engaged.

-Engaging and Fun - Developed with the input of kids, the myStory System brings meaning and fun to each stage of instruction. Engaging videos will hook students and activities provide creative, fun ways for them to demonstrate their learning.

-Reinforce literacy instruction - Reading and writing assignments focus on target reading skills proven to increase reading comprehension.

-Comprehensive instruction support - Detailed lesson plans and audio podcasts.

Grades 5 and 6 are labeled as 5A and 5B. (Many school districts teach this history as a two year course - Grades 5 & 6 - therefore, if your district does so, you may wish wish to align your homeschool studies with your school district - these can then be completed as one course over two grades.) Grade 5A covers American's beginnings through the Civil War in Chapter 1-9; Grade 5B covers Civil War - present in Chapter 9-17.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed myWorld Social Studies! The Student worktext is very bright and engaging. It's very easy to navigate, key words are highlighted, there are many maps and charts along with pictures and diagrams. The questions and activities are designed to get your student to interact with the material. Not just the old "fill in the blank" type of quesitons at all!

The Student Worktext begins with a very useful "Social Studies Handbook" section which covers all the basics:

Reading & Writing
Our Land and Regions
Our Market and Economy
Participating in Our Government

Our favorite component is the myStory Video on DVD-Rom. Each chapter is introduced on this resource with a mini-tour. My children really enjoyed watching the videos. This feature really adds to this programs and adds the much needed auditory component!

The Teacher Resource Library is FILLED with additional information to help you. Lesson Plans, extra activities, learning cards, test/quizzes. You could spend alot of time here! You can pick and choose what extras you want.


The Pearson Homeschool: myWorld Social Studies is a well-rounded program. I think it's great for the busy homeschool Mom who wants their children children to work independently.
