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.
