Nystrom Young Citizens Grade 3 Inquire

A comprehensive, hands-on social studies curriculum

Inquire Young Citizens

Take students on a journey through the history of their towns and state, encouraging them to explore how society as they know it is a small part of the story of the land they live on. Get students engaged in the history and geography of the places they claim as home.

Inquiry & Literacy

This literary-focused, social studies curriculum features an engaging student book, detailed teacher’s guide and online platform, wet-erase maps and globes, engaging activities, leveled student readers, and more. A cast of characters provide students with additional context while exposing them to other cultures and emphasizing the concept of community.

Hands-On
