    Do you think you know this country of ours? Test out your knowledge or just take a stab in the dark – all of the questions are multiple choice! Each player/team receives their own game board; they must travel around the 50 spaces (pictures of the state flags with the name of the state and the date of its entry into the union) and answer trivia questions. The questions are divided into six categories (Government & History; People, Places & Things; Cities & States; Presidents & Politicians; Inventors, Authors & Stars; and Only in America). A roll of the die determines question a player is asked. Questions range from fairly easy to very challenging (most are decently challenging!), but because they are all multiple-choice, everyone has a shot to answer correctly and learn something along the way. If you answer correctly, you get to move along the path. The first player to reach the end and have correctly answered a question from each category wins the game! For 2-4 players/teams. Game includes 108 question cards (each with 6 questions).

      The Teacher Guide is a combination book. It is part teacher book, with some course instructional information, detailed daily lesson plans, an overview of the activities built into the student worksheets, teaching tips for struggling learners, supply lists, suggestions for special projects, and answers for student worksheets. Information for the teacher (about 10% of the book) includes a section on the importance of narration and words of encouragement from the publisher. The remainder of the book is student worksheets (which are reproducible for your own homeschooling family). These worksheets provide the heart of a student’s journal to accompany the course. Very nicely designed and well-illustrated, there are daily front-and-back worksheets. These are similar but appropriately different for each age level between the two series. The whole TG is three-hole punched, and for the record, there are no tests in either series.

      America’s Story worksheets include Draw-Write pages (journaling lines, space for sketching, copywork), Mini-Project pages (cut & glue projects), Written Narration pages, Timeline pages (cards for each chapter with space for students to create their own timeline), a Special Prayer Book (a cut apart book for writing a weekly prayer for his/her country), and Artist Study (quick introduction to an artist with a variety of related art activities). Mapwork and vocabulary study are also a featured part of these pages.

    Joined as one to establish independence from Great Britain, America’s first leaders spent ten years to develop the ideals found in the Declaration of Independence into a unified constitution. The idea of a centralized government resulted in a great debate between the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists. The Federalists wanted to ratify the Constitution; the Anti-Federalists did not. This single volume contains a selection of the classic critiques to the Constitution and thirty-three of the most crucial Federalist papers. Also includes an author’s introduction that examines the history of our American principles of government along with their Scottish, English and French roots. 343 pgs. pb. ~ Deanne

    Chosen by Memoria Press as the text for their high school level American History course, this "concise" history is nevertheless lengthy with its 800+ pages of text. Covering pre-Columbian native American history and cultures briefly, it provides a grand and detailed sweep through American history with chapters tending toward 10-30 year segments. Drawing heavily from, but shortening and revising, a massive history (hence the "concise" in the title) first published in 1930 and revised four times over three decades, this is a second edition published in 1983 and brings American history to the Reagan era. Marked by authoritative scholarship yet written in a narrative style and illustrated with 30 maps and over 250 paintings, cartoons, and photographs, this will be both a challenging and an enjoyable read for the serious student. 859 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    I love reading about the guiding hand of God in our nation's history. I find the story fascinating and the men of faith and conviction inspiring. This book is written in the same vein. Based on the assumption that all of history is providential, we learn how God's presence was evident at our nation's founding in the hearts and minds of the men who fought for independence and framed the Constitution. The book opens with an overview of geography and ancient history before moving to American history. A portion of the book is devoted to the history of education in our country. Later chapters focus on our decline as a nation, and a reconstructionist view is presented for bringing our nation back to what the authors believe God wants it to be. This book is used as a teacher resource for the Beautiful Feet American history studies. Lots of pictures and illustrations. 300 pgs.

    If you want to dig a little deeper into source documents referred to in America's Providential History, get the accompanying Documentary Sourcebook. Inspiring in its own right, this book includes speeches and documents that portray the Christian influence in the founding and history of our nation. A sampling of the offerings in this book includes excerpts from Columbus' Journal of His First Voyage, Fast and Thanksgiving Days of New England, Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution, Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom, Washington's Farewell Address, excerpts from Democracy in America, the 1853 report from the Senate Judiciary Committee about the importance of congressional chaplains. 136 pg, pb.

    For ease of tying these two books together, consider the Teacher's Guide, which includes: APH chapter outlines; study questions for each of the 18 chapters, with answers; three exams, with answers; and a list of books for further study. 102 pgs, pb. ~ Bob

      This biography provides readers with a concise and satisfying overview of the life of Ronald Reagan, from his simple Midwestern upbringing until his days in the White House and beyond. Although this biography of President Reagan by Winston Groom is not as comprehensive as others in print, it is a very readable version of our oldest president’s life. The book contains nice size print, but no illustrations. 152 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    A reprint of the original 1917 edition by H.E. Marshall, this hefty book offers 99 exciting stories from American history, starting with the expeditions of the Vikings and Columbus, and ending with the presidency of Woodrow Wilson. The stories are grouped into seven parts; "Stories of Explorers and Pioneers," "Stories of Virginia," "Stories of New England," "Stories of the Middle and Southern Colonies," "Stories of the French in America," "Stories of the Struggle for Liberty" and "Stories of the United States Under the Constitution." The book is unique in that the first 400 pages or so focus on exploration and the Colonial period, while only the last 200 pages cover the history of the U.S. as its own country. Although there is a lot of content here, the chapters are only several pages in length which make for great supplementary reading or read-alouds. Occasional black-and-white full-page illustrations are included in some chapters. 616 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Full of colorful artwork and photos as well as black & white illustrations, vocabulary tidbits, maps, and biographical sketches, it is skillfully formatted into an appealing and engaging text. Each of the 28 chapters (i.e. weekly lessons) have text interspersed with Narration Breaks (place to stop and recount orally the information that has been covered) and questions: "Ready to Explore". Each chapter ends with a two-page photo montage (a feature I love) that pertains to the chapter's focus. For instance, there is a collection of Native American dwellings each with short informational captions in America's Story.

    Same fast-paced, Dave Stotts-narrated adventures as the above series, but instead of places, this series takes on a tour of the Founding Fathers – er, Founding People (giving Abigail Adams her rightful place as a person of influence in the founding of our country). The first episode examines the Adams family – John, Abigail, and John Quincy; the second a collection of Benjamins – Franklin, Banneker, and Dr. Rush; and the third – without benefit of either a first or last name in common – familiar Americans George Washington and Noah Webster and the not-so-familiar Haym Salomon. Each biographical tour includes family homes, letters/diaries, and accomplishments.

    Another Newbery Award (1994) winner from the author of Number the Stars. A remarkable coming-of-age story about a young man who overcomes his society. Set in a "utopian" or "dystopian" (depending on your point of view!) society which is extremely regulated and controlled, Jonas is selected for the very special job of becoming the Receiver of Memory in this story about a community of the future. When Jonas realizes, however, what has been lost and what the price of conformity is, he makes a daring decision that will forever change his life. Our whole family read and discussed this book, finding it an excellent starting point for frank discussion of individuality and responsibility vs. security and homogeneity. Jonas is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory for his community. As he becomes aware of the choices his world has made, he is faced with a difficult decision.
