Product Description

Uncle Sam and You will immerse students in a full year of learning about civics and government. Designed for students in grades 5-8, lessons focus on America's founding documents, branches of government, patriotic symbols, voting, the election process, Washington, D.C., the presidency, how Congress works, American holidays, and aspects of federal, state, and local government.

Each full-color lesson includes a short chapter to read that explains the topic to the student; chapters feature both modern and historical photographs and illustrations. Lessons conclude with a variety of subject-based activity ideas that relate to Biblical studies, literature, creative writing, art, vocabulary, reading assignments, and notes for the sold-separately (and optional) student workbook/lesson review. A weekly family activity that involves crafts, meals, and other multi-age activities is also provided.

Fifteen units are included each text, with four lessons in each unit. Depending on how many activities are assigned, students will need 45-90 minutes per lesson. However, the back of each book includes fifteen optional lessons on America's patriotic holidays. If five lessons per week are desired, the holiday lessons can be used as a fifth lesson or for other occasions. A total of 150 lessons/30 weeks of lessons are provided.

The included answer key provides answers for the end-of-lesson assignments, student workbook, and lesson review.

The Citizen's Handbook is a collection of primary sources related to American government, politics, and civics, such as letters, memoirs, speeches, articles, songs, and poems; it is often referenced in the lesson activities. The book also includes Virtue Stories about how Americans have served and sacrificed for the benefit of others.

Grades 5-8.

    My son is working through the "Uncle Sam and You" curriculum this year in 7th grade. Although it has only been a few days, he loves the reading in the text and additional books. We've been having engaging discussions about what he is learning--this is a huge change for us. Usually I have to drag information out of him! I am pleased with the level, number, and flexibility of the assignments that accompany the reading.
