The Connecticut Adventure is a 4th grade Connecticut history textbook. The outline for this book is based on the Connecticut Social Studies Curriculum Framework, it teaches history, civics and government, geography, and economics. The book places the state's historical events in the context of our nation's history. The standards also require students to relate events in the past to one's own life experiences, apply geographic knowledge, and demonstrate an understanding of the principles and practices of citizenship. The Connecticut Adventure includes features such as Connecticut Portraits and Geography Tie-Ins that support these standards by encouraging investigation and constructed response.
