Great History, explores the parts of government. It is not boring textbook style, it is very conversational. Great pictures. Fun projects, great bible activities, and the literature We used in last half of 8th grade and into 9th grade. We have used other Notgrass Histories and will Continue through Highschool. I would recommend to all. It is grounded and through out its content incorporates a Christian Worldview.
As a previous 3rd grade teacher I loved this curriculum. The map and timeline books were great. I always feel like geography is missing in a lot of history curriculum but not with this unit. The lesson were super easy to follow and loved the illustrations. I highly recommend this along with Uncle Sam and From Adam to Us. I have used all of the Notgrass curriculum including World History for HS. LOVE!!!
After, a considerable amount of reviewing hm history curriculum, I found little out there that offered what I was looking for. UNTIL....Uncle Sam and You! Amazing and extremely well laid out. Packed with historical info that has captivated my son and peeked his interest! My son has even been known to call his Grandpa and share the days lesson with him especially when its something of my Dad'S day. It bonds their relationship and they both look forward to future lessons. Also, my son never before has had a desire to do much in the way of writing. However, the activities at the end of each lesson have been so well chosen that he often looks ahead with excitement to see what he will be writing or looking up in the Bible. One of my favorite things about Uncle Sam is how it covers so many other subjects at the same time. Most important to me is that this curriculum is God glorifying and that is the #1 reason for my choosing it! Thank You Notgrass, for all of your diligent work to provide an excellent , top-notch curriculum that sings quality! You have blessed our family greatly!
With Much Appreciation,
My kids love all of their products and so do I. They are easy to use, have beautiful pictures, and tell the truth about history from His Story. This would be great to do in an election year, like now. But we did it last year. However, doing it and also studying the constitution too just before the election cycle started, my kids have really gotten a lot out of our discussions about this election. They can both speak intelligently about what's right and wrong about what politicians say and do or don't say and don't do. It's been fun to watch them be so frustrated with the candidates and the fact that they aren't old enough to vote yet. Thank you Notgrass and Uncle Sam and You for giving my kids a love for our country and a desire to see the right candidate become our next president. My kids can't get enough of your history books. Please keep writing more. I am hoping Geography is still in the plans for the very near future!

Great product! Goes well with a study of the constitution too.
Being an election year, we decided this would be a good choice for our 8th grader to learn about civics and government and so far we've been very satisfied with this curriculum. This is our second year (and 3rd curricula) using Notgrass and I highly recommend this company and these products. The material is easy to use and I love the biblical worldview. I plan on sticking with Notgrass history curriculum all through high school!
