C3 Social Studies Program

Grades K–5

Standards-aligned social studies titles for the classroom

The College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards has informed state social studies standards since 2010. These rigorous standards outline the concepts and skills students should demonstrate at each grade band.



Each book has been meticulously aligned to one of four disciplines—history, civics, economics, and geography. The collection’s variety of text types, engaging selections, and range of reading levels will meet the needs of your diverse classroom.


Dynamic images and primary sources engage students in historical inquiry. Students will acquire and integrate knowledge about significant events, developments, individuals, groups, documents, places, and ideas to support investigations about the past.


High-interest topics and factual sidebars offer the principles, history and foundations of our American democracy. Students will build knowledge of civic engagement in the classroom, community, nation, and across the world.


Informational text features connect students to the text, build comprehension, and help students to engage in economic reasoning while
considering costs and benefits.


Students will understand their place in the larger world and develop a curiosity about our earth’s diverse environments and cultures.
