Student Book 

Grades K-8

The Student Book is the core component of the Gallopade Curriculum program. It is 100% aligned to the latest social studies standards, and has been developed from an evidence-based approach that uses chunking, active learning, and engagement of multiple learning styles while using all levels of questioning and thinking.


All-in-One Curriculum

Student Books combine textbook content with workbook activities in one book. Students master grade-appropriate content and skills as outlined in the standards, while building literacy, critical thinking skills, and more.


  • 100% Aligned - Created for YOUR STATE; 100% comprehensive, aligned, and correlated to the latest social studies standards. Standards are cited at the beginning of each chapter.

  • Evidence-Based Results - Gallopade's successful formula of "small bites" of information plus reinforcing and skill-building activities creates a continuous learning experience proven to be effective! Students build knowledge, deepen understanding, and develop strong comprehension and analytical skills. The "small bites" approach also increases students' ability to recall and apply what they learn throughout the school year. 

  • Engaging - Students receive their own Book to write in, highlight, take home, and keep. Pages are colored and perforated! 

  • No Fluff = Time Saver - The Student Book covers all content and skills required by standards without burying them in a bunch of information that overwhelms students. This helps teachers make effective use of instructional time, allowing them to determine when and where to expand. 

  • New Books Every Year - Each student receives their own book. With adoptions, Student Books are replaced every school year!
