Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a sixth grade teacher, of ESL and Social Studies. My students have various levels of English, and it is very helpful to them to see, witness history.

The social studies books are very hard for most of my students to understand. Therefore they need different level books, with pictures to understand the content of social studies.

The resources my students need to understand the social studies are social studies books with beautiful pictures of the country, its culture and history.

You will make it possible for my students to love and understand social studies, if you help us get the DK eyewitness social studies books. Thank you so much for your help.

Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
