This is not at all helpful. It is literally a collection of clip art. Most of these photos we found while using Google for our early American unit. There are ZERO activities or instructions. It actually says "These should get you and your student(s) going, as with any lapbook ideas, you may find plenty more of your own to add." Don't waste your money.
This product includes much information that helps give me a great perspective to teach from. But I particularly like is the play format. This makes history come to life and the kids get personally involved with the history. The creating of the constitution takes on new meaning when you play a character whose life you take on and whose point of view you have to represent.
As a historian who is a Christian, I certainly include in these books, and any others I write, the role of God and Christians in our history. That will be more obvious in some places than others - it comes up in the debates in the Philadelphia Convention, so it is mentioned in the appropriate places in the books dealing with that. And there are several times, particularly in our early history, where documents such as the Mayflower Compact and the Declaration of Independence refer to the hand of God or the influence of God, and of course those are included. In spite of all the current hoopla about "the separation of church and state," I don't believe you can really look at our early history without discussing God, and the reliance of the early citizens of the US on Him, so I certainly include references to that in those places. I hope that adequately answers your question.

I see many e-book offers I am interested in (not just on this site), but I am not online at home. Would you recommend I ask my boss if I can download books to a computer at work? (We have had some computer problems due to internet searches and downloads, so I fear the answer will be "no.")
