Nurture young minds by introducing social studies in a familiar and easy-to-navigate neighborhood. Kindergartners apply what they learn about the fictional neighborhood Riverside to form a better understanding of their own communities. This complete curriculum includes solutions for all ages and learning styles so every student can succeed.

Turn instruction into learning with the components which are the heart of this program. Hands-on activities make social studies tangible for young learners. Prompt students to develop introductory geography skills with a blend of print and digital materials including the oversized Jumbo Atlas, floor maps, and globe that provides a balance of skills and concepts.
