Product Description:

You won't be able to put down this inspiring, true story of a young boy lost for nearly two weeks on one of Maine's highest mountain peaks. Find lessons about nature and life in the easy, conversational story as told by the survivor, Donn Fendler, to author Joseph B. Egan. 109 pages, soft cover. Rachel

When twelve-year-old Donn Fendler gets tired of waiting for his father and brothers to join him on the summit of Maine's highest peak, he decides to find his own way back to camp. But Donn doesn't count on a fast-moving fog that obscures the path. He doesn't count on falling down an embankment that hides him from sight. And he doesn't count on taking a turn that leaves him alone to wander aimlessly for nearly two weeks in the empty mountain wilderness.

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
