Social Studies For Kids
Age Range: 5-18 (grades K-12 approximately, with parental supervision)
This ad-supported website offers an archive of resources designed for kids about history, geography, government, economics, different cultures, current events and more.
When you get to the site you will see some of the featured resources for current events and history. Use the menu on the left side of the page to explore:
- Current Events — Get some insight on what’s taking place throughout the world.
- Book Reviews – Discover fiction and non-fiction books that are either about or incorporate social studies for ages 4-18.
- Fun and Games — An unbelieveable selection of interactive computer games for history, geography, cultures, economics and more.
- Cultures, Holidays, Languages, Religions — An array of links to websites with activities, information, and resources to explore the world’s people and their customs and beliefs.
- Economics — The website description of this section says it best: “Economics is not just money. It’s businesses and how they work. It’s lemonade stands and how many dollars they take in. It’s toy collecting and baseball card collections. It’s taxes and allowances. It’s stocks and bonds. Economics is part of almost everything you could ever think about. Find out how by visiting the links on this page.”
- Geography — You’ll find more than maps here. You’ll find links to websites with lessons and activities that help kids to have a better understanding of the world, and where they are in relation to the rest of it.
- Government — Learn everything from how a bill becomes law in the U.S. to how other countries are governed.
You’ll also find selections that contain historical timelines, information on U.S. and World History, activities for learning about every state in the U.S., information about ancient civilizations, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, Explorers, Wars, Archaeology, Sports, and more. There are even teaching resources.
IMPORTANT: This is mainly an ad-supported resource website containing links to other websites where the content is archived. That means that you’ll occasionally encounter error messages, but overall most of the links work. As always, parents should preview the content and supervise all Internet use.
