The scope of these books includes topics from history, geography, economics, civics, and culture, offering a rich blend of historical perspectives and contemporary issues.
All books in the series include interactive tasks aimed at developing skills such as critical and analytical thinking, reasoning, decision-making, problem-solving, organizing ideas, and making suggestions.
Colourful photographs, illustrations, maps, diagrams, and information boxes make the books stimulating and reader-friendly.
Content Review and Going Further exercises given at the end of each chapter are designed to activate the thinking process in children, increase their involvement and participation, and to encourage them to apply the concepts learnt in their daily life.
