UNIT DESCRIPTION:

Our Independence Day unit is all about… Independence Day! It’s not dry. It’s not a “boring government unit.”  It’s a unit that will make your family passionate about why our country is what it is and how it came to be. This is about the birth of our country, the Revolutionary War, the celebration of our freedom, and some of the founding fathers who helped create our new nation. It will help your family to understand the ins and outs of the holiday, the season, the reason for our important government documents… all of it (including the controversy and different viewpoints in history).  It’s about the actual American Revolution, what was happening in that day, and why we celebrate today!  The history in this unit and the social studies will bring this to life in a way that you’ve never had before.  If you didn’t think learning about all of this could be fun and intriguing, take a peek at some of the sample pages!

Not to mention… we include SO MANY festive activities for your family to turn this into a full celebration of reds, whites, and blues.  Party punches, patriotic popcorn, paper making, costumes… it will make your family feel like you are on a week-long holiday schedule when you’re really learning SO MUCH!  It’s all optional, of course, but it’s all there. 

Core Connections dives into literature, grammar, short stories, spelling, parts of speech, character development and more!  The science is ALL about chemistry: electrons, protons, neutrons, ions, static electricity, the periodic table and more… and it’s all based on the Founding Fathers in our story! 

*HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (NOT AT ALL REQUIRED): Consider completing the Military unit first, and then jumping into Independence Day.  The two units are set up so that one flows right into the next.  This is not required at all, but is a beautiful way to connect history from present all the way to the very beginning of our country’s past!

DIFFERENCES FROM THE NORM:

None.

CORE CONNECTIONS COMPANION:

This can be used as core curriculum (with Core Connections) or as an extracurricular (without Core Connections) such a summer unit where “Dad” can get involved, if desired!

AUDIO DETAILS:

The audio recording will consist of the main lesson portions of the Growing/Advanced guidebooks (black font).  This is all of the main lesson content. This recording will obviously not include things like activity directions, “notes to parents,” different-colored font in the side bar (which is for independent study), or optional SYW pages.

How to purchase if you have a Campfire Credit Currency balance:

Some customers have built up Campfire Credit Currencies from prior summer sales.  Our system does not allow combined “Credit Currency” and “debit card” payments.  Since the audio recording cannot be purchased with a credit currency, you will need to do separate transactions or your debit card will be charged for the full balance of whatever is in your cart at checkout.  As such, you would merely purchase the regular units with your Campfire Currency (if you haven’t already), and then purchase the audio download individually, as a separate transaction with your debit card. 

Required for Audio:

You are only able to purchase the individual audio recording if you have already purchased the unit.  The audio recording is intended to be used along WITH the unit.  Otherwise, you will miss the visuals (like maps and graphs, which aid in teaching), any associated Cool Teacher Moments, the special side boxes, definition boxes, etc!  We will still have little “beeps” throughout the recording to get your attention for when to look at the guidebook for note taking, but those are intended as helpful guides.  We do not recommend listening to the recording without following along in the guidebook, especially for aid in memory retention and understanding.
