Product Description:

A true story of a gunned-down U.S. Air Force pilot and his struggle to survive 6 days with only grass and ants to eat. Captain Scott O'Grady of the U.S. Air Force started his morning like every other morning. Little did he know that later that day he would be shot down in his F-16 and have to parachute five miles down to hostile Bosnian soil. While the enemy is hunting for him and the U.S. Air Force thinks he died in the crash, Captain Scott O'Grady, all alone and over 10,000 miles away from home, knelt in prayer and stuck to his training. This book offers breathtaking excitement and a stunning example of one's limits and true faith in God. 134 pgs, pb. - Jon

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
