American Government

The people and events in the history of American government tell a tale that brings the basics of our government to life. Who exactly were the Founding Fathers, and why are they still such hot topics of debate? Why did they want to not only break away from England, but form a new and very different form of government? Just exactly what was the "Great Compromise" and what difference did it make? And, by the way, wait until you learn about the Electoral College and the real reason for its creation.

Yes, there are many fascinating things to learn in addition to the basics of our Constitution, the structure of our government, and the contribution of so many people – everyday people with lives and families just like yours and mine. Given this precious gift of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" as American citizens, this next generation needs to learn the importance of what it means to be an American and what part the government plays in their daily lives, and how they can make a difference.

Come on along as we learn the story of our government – visiting the halls of lawmakers and justice, and much more. Take time to read about some of the people that have changed the course of our country by voicing their concerns and ideas, as citizens of this great country. From voting to obeying laws, from governments during biblical times to governments today – join us in our investigation!

Auto Racing

What a thrill to hear a racecar roar by as it races down the track! With so many types of competitive auto racing, this topic makes for a great unit study. As well as providing a wonderful opportunity to learn about cars and engines, there is a rich history to racing as well as plenty of science. From stock car racing to Formula One racing, from rallies to drag racing - providing learning and fun for kids of all ages.

When studying racing, history, science, geography and physics come into the picture, and what more exciting and interesting topic than this to learn about forces, combustion, safety and so much more. We will learn about racing legends as well as today's drivers competing for their turn at victory. We will take a look at today's family cars – how they work and about some of their features. Speedways around the world will be studied, along with famous tracks here in America. Along with all of this, the students will take a look at the forces involved in racing, car design, safety features, and the driving strategies used by today's drivers.

Let's see what we can learn from all of the dreamers, inventors and drivers that helped make automobiles and auto racing a reality. We will take a journey back in time to learn more about the development of automobiles, from Henry Ford and his many contributions to today's designs for tomorrow's cars. This four-week unit study provides plenty of opportunity for field trips as well as hands-on learning. Plan to join us as we take off on a new adventure!

On sale for $5 each through February 14, 2011!
