This is no ordinary fill-in-the-blanks way to learn. These exercises are fun and surprising. Students will do the useful work of practicing social studies skills while they enjoy characters of many cultures who lead them to explore social and cultural concepts. They will examine what makes groups and societies tick and get a look inside the WTO, ILO and IMF. The pages are written with the assumption that an adult will be available to assist the student with their learning and practice. Students will also need access to social studies resources such as maps and globes, atlases, Internet reference sources and encyclopedias.
