The Arizona Story is a brand-new 4th grade Arizona history textbook. Because the outline for this book was based on the Arizona Academic Standards for Social Studies, it teaches American history, world history, civics and government, geography, and economics. The student edition has many features such as timelines, In-Text Activities, Arizona Connections, maps, charts, graphs, and What Do You Think? discussion questions. At the end of every chapter is an Application Activity that challenges students to demonstrate comprehension, and a Chapter Review that allows students to review the key objectives of the chapter and draw conclusions.

THE ARIZONA STORY (copyright 2009), a textbook to teach or supplement teaching of Arizona history to 9- and 10-year old students, has a dozen or so mistakes, the most significant of which states that `The Desert Land Act gave people called homesteaders 640 acres of land for free' (page 217). THE LAND WAS NOT FREE!!!!!, and the error is repeated at page 237. To get a list of mistakes and corrections, email a request to earlzarbin@yahoo.com.
