My Story 2
My Story, My Country, My World is a lower elementary social studies course that introduces students to history, politics, economics, sociology, and geography, while providing a comprehensive understanding of God’s world and the cultures of each country. Level 2 continues with a journey around the world, and lays a foundation for understanding state and federal governments, basic economic principles, and more. Equivalent to a second grade level.
This book of adventure is going to help you learn all about social studies. Social studies is about people and places around the world. We will talk about what people eat, where our food comes from, how governments are set up, the symbols on flags from different countries and what they mean, how God teaches us to love the people of the world like He does, and much more. The language of this book is English, but we’ll share some Italian and Chinese words with you too!
