We have finished giving our free civics studies an update! These 16 lessons are based on The Century Book for Young Americans by Elbridge S. Brooks. This is an introduction to the government of the United States for all ages told in story form.
By spending two weeks on each lesson you’ll have a full year of civics lessons.
Topics covered include:
- The three branches of government.
- The Constitution.
- The flag.
- Various government departments.
- The Capital.
- The state, city, and town.
- The citizen.
The book also ends on a fun note by looking at a few of America’s marvels, such as the Statue of Liberty, Niagara Falls, and more.
Over the last few years, the Internet has changed more rapidly than at any other time in our 20+ years. Flash interactives have largely been replaced, and we have attempted to track those down. Many resources have vanished, and reputable, stable resources are becoming increasingly difficult to find.
We were able to add a handful of newer resources. We also updated or deleted links as necessary.
You’ll find parent/teacher suggestions, ideas for further investigation, hands-on and interactive activities, book recommendations, lesson plans and other units, and notebooking pages and printables.
Links to the free eBook and suggestions for using the lessons are on the introduction page.
