US Government is a rich mini unit that we've published in both Spanish and English. It teaches about both the history of politics and how the government is set up, as well as how voting works. As a mini unit, it only has 2 student pages per day and focuses on an oral presentation to show what you know. Pre-reader students will make a mini book to present at the end of the unit, 6-10 year olds are creating their own country and government structure, and older students are choosing a debate topic. Students will make timelines, learn about the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, and Amendments. Weekly narration for those of you who need to test or to use as review, weekly vocabulary words, daily notebooking pages, a daily prayer to start each day... this unit isn't just beautiful, it is a little treasure! With landmarks, history, geography, civics, and so much more, you definitely want to add this to your list.
What to buy? You will need to purchase a physical workbook for each child as well as a Teacher's Guide for yourself. The Teacher's Guides contain all the actual teaching, they are not just for answers, so they are critical to your lessons. Printed books are printed on 32lb. paper and are shipped to you coil bound.
How long are units designed to last? Each unit is designed to be 4-5 weeks. Our main units and most of our mini units include 20 lessons and can be done as a 4-day school week (lasting 5 weeks) or a 5-day school week (lasting 4 weeks) to offer flexibility. You're in control! Set a schedule that works best for your family and your pace will dictate how quickly you complete any given unit.
