What Is Social Studies Weekly for Kids?

Social Studies Weekly is an educational classroom magazine focusing on topics in history, government and civics. Published for American students in kindergarten through sixth grade, the magazines seek to replace traditional textbooks in primary classrooms with weekly magazines.

Each issue of Social Studies Weekly contains stories and pictures around a theme, along with written activities or reading comprehension questions. There are different versions available for each grade level, and the stories and lessons vary by state. Teachers receive the magazines quarterly, but the magazines have weekly units that correlate to state standards and requirements. The publisher, Studies Weekly, offers similar magazines focusing on other subject areas that include math and science.
