We know that we need to teach our children the basics of American government, but how can we study it so that we all stay interested while real learning takes place? The people and events in the history of American government tell a tale that brings the basics of our government to life. Who were the Founding Fathers, and why are they still such hot topics of debate? Just exactly what was the "Great Compromise" and what difference did it make? And, wait until you learn about the Electoral College and the real reason for its creation. Given this precious gift of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" as American citizens, the 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.

  1. Hi there--I don't know where else to write this...

    My son and I are working on the DNG George Washington--and he REALLY REALLY wants to do one on Abe Lincoln. Is there one in the works? I can't find any lapbooks or unit studies anywhere on just him.

    He has mentioned learning about Abe Lincoln several times...


We love to hear from you. Please comment below. Thanks!
