For Social Studies: Used in their recommended sequence, CKHG materials can form the basis of an engaging Social Studies program that builds historical and geographical knowledge and skills grade by grade.

For Language Arts: You can also use CKHG to integrate content-rich nonfiction into your Reading/Language Arts lessons. CKHG objectives are correlated with the Common Core English Language Arts standards, which call for increased reading of nonfiction informational texts. With CKHG, you can take an interdisciplinary approach to reading that provides rich, meaningful, and sustained engagement with informational texts organized in a coherent sequence.

CKHG Components

Student Readers: richly illustrated and engagingly written Teacher Guides: with detailed lesson plans, activity page masters, additional activities, and assessments Timeline Cards: visual aids to reinforce big ideas, chronology, and context NOTE: If you downloaded a CKHG Teacher Guide prior to March 1, 2017, please download again to receive files with updated links to CKHG Online Resources.
