Inquiry Journeys

Welcome! Discover how Inquiry Journeys engages students and supports teachers in inquiry-based elementary social studies.

Engaging and Authentic Social Studies Learning

Think back on the way that you learned social studies…

  • Did you memorize lots of dates?

  • How much knowledge did you gain?

  • What experiences do you remember?

Inquiry Journeys is different! It helps students build deep knowledge and skills through investigation, instruction, and experience. And their learning experiences last a lifetime!
