Social Studies Worksheets and Printables

The three R’s may receive all the big educational headlines, but that doesn’t mean other subjects aren’t just as important. Take social studies, which enlightens kids about history, geography, music, and so much more. Our collection of social studies worksheets complement classroom learning on topics ranging from how to read a map and how to identify different landforms to the historical significance of Rosa Parks and the American Revolution.

Help Kids Explore the World with Social Studies Worksheets

One of the reasons many students find social studies fascinating is they get to learn about the world around them from perspectives past, present, and future. Furthermore, they begin to discover how to navigate their surroundings and understand how those who came before them helped shape the world in which they live. In other words, through the beauty of social studies, kids begin to appreciate there’s more to life than what exists in their immediate sphere.

Our social studies worksheets help build on that appreciation with an array of informative lessons, intriguing texts, fascinating fact pages, interactive puzzles, and fun trivia games. And because these social studies worksheets are grade-specific, all students have access to age-appropriate material designed to stimulate their brains and bolster their creative-thinking skills. That means first graders can print out a worksheet about senses and feelings, followed by a Harriet Tubman coloring page. Meanwhile, older students can follow up a stats and capitals quiz with a printout that discusses the history of the Underground Railroad or a word find based on civil rights leaders. So many subjects and topics are addressed through our social studies pages that kids will never run out of interesting ways to explore their world.
