Social Studies for Primary Schools (Book 5)
Social Studies for Primary Schools introduces important themes from history, geography and other social sciences. Children begin by studying their familiar environment and advance to learn about the wider world. This approach enhances children’s abilities to understand and value their own cultures, and to respect and tolerate difference. Through exercises and activities in the textbook and accompanying workbook, children learn to ask critical questions and work independently and in groups.
