Gallopade: Gallopade Curriculum successfully meets Georgia’s Standards of Excellence and prepares students for Georgia Milestones achievement.
Social Studies Weekly: Every student has access to our robust online platform, where they delve deeper into history through 100K+ primary source images and videos. Students also love our audio reader, highlighting tools and rewards system.
The Explorer Program: This resource uses write-on maps as well as non-fiction books written on appropriate grade levels to teach social studies concepts and geography.
Mini-Society: (3rd grade only) Mini society for third grade focuses on the Georgia Performance Economic standards for third grade- supply and demand. Mini society consists of students working together to create a product that they think will make a profit. Students make enough of their product to sell at the market day for mini society. Students then buy and sell products with mini society money (imitation money).
