Are you looking for a curriculum that dives deep into how the government works, presidency, voting, etc for your middle schooler? Check out this curriculum from Notgrass then! This course is designed for grades 5th-8th and gives your student an in-depth look at the United States government. This year is an election year too so it would be the perfect time to study it! I’m thinking this summer we may do this for my older ones and just leave out some things that would be harder for my 3rd and 4th grader to do. 🙂
Let’s take a closer look!
When you buy this set you will receive: Uncle Sam and You part 1 and part 2, The Citizen’s Handbook, student workbook, lesson review and answer key.
Here’s a preview of everything covered.

This is such an great way to get your middle schoolers learning about how our government works in a hands on way. I love the how the Notgrass family brings history to life for students and can’t wait to do this course with my kiddos!
