Category Description for Uncle Sam and You (Gr. 5-8):

Families who have home-educated through the high school years have been greatly blessed by the efforts of the Notgrass family in providing quality, Bible Based history curriculum options. With the core belief that God is actively involved in our nation's history and future, students in middle school have the same opportunity to learn of our nation's great Christian heritage. With a vision to equip students with knowledge and inspiration, this curriculum provides children with a solid understanding of the core values and beliefs that made our nation great. President Ronald Reagan eloquently stated, "If we ever forget we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under", and the authors are passionate about helping children never forget this point.

The hardcover student text, Uncle Sam and You, is divided into two parts (each part is sold separately). Each part contains 15 units and 75 lessons. Part One introduces the American system of government, elections, the Presidency and Congress. Part Two covers the military and emergency workers, state and local government, the judicial system and the government oversight of transportation, tourism, technology, communication and more. Each lesson contains approximately six pages to be read daily. Each part also contains lessons on fifteen American patriotic holidays. These holiday studies are designed to provide historical background and context along with activities to complete as a family.

Each lesson incorporates a variety of activities, including: thinking biblically assignments, creative writing, vocabulary assignments, short research activities, art activities (draw a picture or take a photograph), reading assignments (Citizen's Handbookor from the selection of recommended literature

We've used many social studies curriculum programs over our many years of homeschooling, but Notgrass has become our very favorite. We love the way the lessons are laid out and the rich scriptural foundation. The pages are full of colorful pictures, the literature selections are perfectly suited, and the review books help cement what students have learned from the textbook.

I chose this curriculum because it is designed for students in grades 5-8. I believe this is a great age group to teach American Government to. This year is also an election year and I want my child to understand the election process, what presidents do, and how local governments work. This curriculum also teaches about major American holidays.

I've heard great things about Notgrass. This is our year to incorporate it and fill in a gap they have in their education: Civics!

The lessons look more engaging than our previous history. I think the colorful pages are going to keep my daughter's interest (and mine). It seems like a thorough curriculum and we are looking forward to trying it out this year.

Because it is an election year, I wanted to explore government in detail. My 10th grade student used Notgrass material last year for World History, and we were so happy with it I decided to try the Uncle Sam and You with my middle schoolers this year.

We used America the Beautiful for 6th grade and really enjoyed it. My son liked being able to be his own teacher.

My student enjoyed America the Beautiful but did become bored with this program because of the whole year of US Government. But we do plan on continuing to the next book in the series.

Love Notgrass History!
It's can be challenging choosing curriculum for each subject. So thankful for Uncle Sam and You and America the Beautiful. It's so well rounded. It's not just answer- the -questions at the end. The assignments are laid out so well and allows them to do the lessons on their own. We love it! I think this can be for the child that loves or hates history. As I experience that but the well rounded activities livens it up. Lori

Just what I was looking for
My daughter is in the 6th grade and we are going to use this curriculum over two years.....two lessons a week. She is reading it independently and likes it. I love the holiday section in the back! I am even reading these to my 2nd graders!

Very happy with this purchase!

Wow!! Love it!!
I'm using this for my 8th grader this year. She is enjoying the content as well as covering government, history, vocabulary, research, reading, and writing all in 1 text. It seems less overwhelming to her!

<p>When I was specifically looking for a civics and government course to teach to my 5th grader I came across UNCLE SAM AND YOU The textbook is filled with hundreds of photographs that make what we're reading relevant! It is beautifully constructed and the information is solid civics and government Not only does it explain how all different facets of our government work (from the POTUS to the local sanitation crew) but it clearly explains how our government was originally designed to work and gently notes where we have gone off-course The Notgrass Company does an excellent job at bringing all information back to the Word of God My studious 5th grader is able to do all of the work as an independent study but this curriculum would be a marvelous family unit for all your levels particularly as the USA marches into the 2016 presidential elections I recommend this without reservation to all my friends looking for government or civics</p>
