Homeschool Huskies & Ponies Vol. 1: Patriotic

This is an extremely appealing civics program appropriate for younger children. I would strongly suggest using it in place of social studies for your younger children as it lays a good foundation for understanding concepts and principles fundamental to our country: government, currency, postal system, military, flag, pledge of allegiance, national anthem and patriotism. Although the activities and presentations look fun and motivating enough, the author has included iron-on patches to be awarded upon completion of each unit. As in girl scouts or boy scouts, each unit begins with requirements to be met for earning each patch (these are like learning objectives). As each requirement is met, it can be checked off. After all are accomplished, parents sign and date the page, and add the iron-on patch to the child's T-shirt. Each unit contains varying amounts of information on the subject studied, with directions for additional research, explorations, or activities needed to complete the unit, plus extra-credit "trivia" questions that can be used to extend the unit or make it more challenging for older students to earn their patches. Huskies (for boys) and ponies (for girls) are identical, as are the two-color patches of symbols keyed to units. The only difference is the larger patch to be placed on the back of the shirt which are, of course, a husky or pony. This would be an excellent unit for a co-op group also.
