Product Description:

When I look up and see a jet streaking across the sky, I'm amazed that such a big hunk of metal can actually get up in the air and fly. Men have been fascinated with the art of flight for millennia, trying to copy the birds of the air and what their Creator has made the winged creatures do so naturally. Early man-made attempts at flight were dismal failuresuntil the Wright brothers came along. Flight captured the imaginations of Wilber and Orville Wright from the time they were young. Their curiosity was aroused by the experiments of Otto Lilienthal, and these close brothers began a journey of learning and research. They began experimenting with gliders and failed miserably. So they experimented some more. They were eventually successful, but it was a long, hard road to get there. This is their story, wonderfully told by Russell Freedman and illustrated with contemporary photography (including many photos shot by the Wright brothers themselves). This large paperback would make a great addition to a unit study on flight or inventions, but children will enjoy reading this story just for fun, too. Don't be surprised if they become inspired to pursue and develop big ideas of their own! 129 pgs, pb. Chad
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
