Timberdoodle's review
 
Uncle Sam and You

View Sample Pages

A good civics course will teach your child about how laws are made, enforced, modified, and amended, and about his rights and duties as a citizen. A great civics course goes even further. Uncle Sam and You not only covers the basics but also delves into national symbols, international relations, national security, national holidays, and much, much more. Replete with images, Uncle Sam and You highlights both modern and historical photographs and illustrations.

Great for independent learning - there is no separate Teacher's Manual Ė the simple instructions in Uncle Sam and You are directed to your child. Every week a new unit is introduced with four daily lessons, each with four to six optional activities. Some activities included are creative writing, vocabulary usage, instructions to draw a picture or take a photograph, and reading assignments from The Citizenís Handbook. The readings from The Citizenís Handbook are a diverse collection of speeches, personal memoirs, newspaper articles and advertisements, historical writings, excerpts from the Constitution, and much more. In addition, one of the suggested activities is to read two to three chapters daily from eight optional books to give your child a richer perspective on the various topics studied. These are titles you may already have or can easily obtain from your local library. If you have a voracious reader this is a good choice.

Uncle Sam and You also includes thirty optional lessons on America's patriotic holidays that can be used once a week. A special corresponding multi-age family activity such as craft and art projects or themed meals is assigned to each holiday lesson.

The Uncle Sam and You Answer Key provides answers for the end-of-lesson assignments and the student workbook (optional workbook sold separately).

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2014 Sixth-Grade Curriculum Kit!
