Subject:         *TOG Years 1, 2, 3 *LOTS of historical fiction & History & Science & Logic Curriculum
Date: July 8, 2013 at 11:44 am PST

Tapestry of Grace is a unit study curriculum that covers most of the
major subject areas for all your students in grades K through 12. It
covers the same general topics for all students simultaneously, but
instruction and activities are divided into four levels of learning.
The divisions are:
*Lower Grammar (Grades K-3)
*Upper Grammar (Grades 3-6)
*Dialectic (Grades 6-9)
*Rhetoric (Grades 9-12)
There is a purposeful overlap here to address the reality that students
at the same ages rarely progress at the same rate.
This curriculum lasts for the full 12 years of your students' learning
of history. Once they have gone through the first 4 years, they go back
through again, but this time at the next level. Once they are through at
that level, they go through again at the next level and so on. You will
cycle through 4 times if you begin TOG in kindergarten. You can start
TOG at any grade though.
Subject areas covered include history, writing, literature, fine arts,
geography, church history, including missions, and Bible. TOG uses non-
fiction as well as fiction books. It includes multi-sensory learning
options to address different learning styles and interests, ranging from
reading, writing, comprehension/discussions questions, and simple art
projects, to full costumed reenactments. Detailed lesson plans and
discussion outlines enable parents to teach with confidence.

OUR LIVING CONSTITUTION (Grades 5th-8th) (TOG, Yrs 2, 3, 4, 5wks)
-- This book was written to more easily pass on the rich and timeless
message of the U.S. Constitution and to demonstrate how it serves us
today. Easy-to-use, it makes the legalistic language and complex
structure of the document accessible for all students. Using a unique,
two-column format, the full text of the Constitution is presented beside
an explanation of its meaning in terms students will understand. Divided

and directives for outside work. The book begins with a study of the
Declaration of Independence for historical perspective. --$7.00
(Grades 5th-8th)
-- The book's purpose is to revive thoughtful patriotism in the United
States - patriotism based on the simple idea that Americans are indebted
to the men and women of the revolutionary generation for the freedoms we
enjoy. It introduces students to the story of the American Revolution in
a way that will enrich their appreciation of our free system of

Why America Is Free is based on the premise that the revolutionary
generation enunciated the fundamental principles of liberty and
constructed the foundations upon which American freedom has grown for
more than two centuries. The great accomplishments of later generations
- the abolition of slavery, the recognition of the civil liberties of
women and minorities, and the spreading of American principles of
natural rights and representative government throughout the world - were
based on the achievements of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James
Madison, and the thousands of individual men and women whose sacrifices
made the American Revolution a success.

Why America Is Free teaches that the American Revolution is an ongoing
revolution, and its ultimate fulfillment is the civic responsibility of
all Americans. The future of liberty is in our hands, and ultimately the
hands of our children.

Besides the actual history, this book includes personal accounts, and
what life was like at that time. --$6.00

THE PIONEERS GO WEST --George Stewart (Landmark Books)
-- Seventeen-year-old Moses Schallenberger wanted to go to California.
In 1844, he joined a wagon train to do just that. There was only one
problem: Nobody had ever made it to California by wagon before. For a
year, he and 50 others struggled through high mountain passes and across
wide rushing rivers, enduring dangerous encounters with Indians and
buffalo, inclement weather, difficult terrain, near-starvation and
disaster. Ultimately, Moses and his friends succeeded–becoming the first
pioneers to cross the Sierra Nevada's by wagon. --$2.75

- the land of the Gold Rush and home to many Native American tribes. See

become president? The answers to these and many other questions about
the presidential elections are revealed in this quick, friendly read.
Guiding young readers through the complicated process of determining the
leader of the country, the book includes chapters on the rules for
electing the president, the electoral college, the presidential
campaign, and the procedure and order of succession if something happens
to the president. A glossary and selected bibliography provide useful
fodder for future student research. Sprinkled throughout are fascinating
tidbits on past presidents and their wives. In the 1948 election, for
example, the Chicago Tribune was so sure Thomas Dewey had won the close
race against Harry S. Truman, they printed a front-page story with the
headline, Dewey Defeats Truman. Imagine their chagrin when all the votes
were counted and Truman had won! --$3.00
-- That's a big job, and getting bigger. But why not? Presidents have
come in just about every variety. They've been generals like George
Washington and actors like Ronald Reagan; big like William Howard Taft
and small like James Madison; handsome like Franklin Pierce and homely
like Abraham Lincoln. They've been born in log cabins like Andrew
Jackson and mansions like William Harrison.
From the embarrassment of skinny-dipping John Quincy Adams, to the
escapades of Theodore Roosevelt's children, to the heroic recovery of
John Kennedy's crew, Judith St. George shares the backroom facts, the
spit-fire comments, and the comical anecdotes that have been part and
parcel of America's White House.
Hilariously illustrated by Caldecott honor-winning artist David Small in
the cherished tradition of political commentary, this rip-roaring
celebration of the Presidents shows us the foibles, the quirks, and —
most of all — the humanity of those men who have risen to one of the
most powerful positions in the world. --$3.00

Shanghaied to China (Dave & Neta Jackson)
- Neil Thompson had promised his grandmother that he would wait for his
grandfather to bring him to see the great oceangoing ships at the docks
in Liverpool, England. But when he convinced himself that it was okay to
go alone, he did not know the danger he would face on that bright
morning in September 853. The docks were no place for a twelve-year-old
boy who was alone. Stopping to admire a small clipper ship, the
Dumfries, Neil is suddenly grabbed and dragged aboard the ship, then
locked in a small, dark room until the ship is on its way to sea. When
he's finally let out, he discovers he's been shanghaied to be a cabin
boy on a tea clipper bound for China and there's no chance for escape!
Fortunately for Neil, on board ship is a young missionary named Hudson

faith be able to overcome all the bad things that fall upon Neil's life?
Will Neil ever make it home? Why should Hudson Taylor help? -$3.25
Risking the Forbidden Game (Maude Cary)
--For Jamal and Hameem, The Game starts out as a fun and daring contest
between the two young boys to see who can collect more items belonging
to the "enemy" - the French soldiers who are keeping Morocco from
gaining its independence. For a Muslim to be seen with anything
belonging to the infidels is among the most punishable of sins, but the
excitement of The Game calls to the adventurous boys, who even risk
swiping belongings right off of the French soldiers.
The Game becomes more risky when Jamal begins collecting pictures from
the Christian missionary Maude Cary, whom he meets in the marketplace.
Surely a whole set of the pictures must be worth enough points to win
The Game! Then Jamal realizes that each picture tells a story about
Jesus, and he's torn between believing the missionary's stories and
believing the Muslim way. When a French traitor comes to Jamal for help,

ENDANGERED SPECIES: A Unit Study (Grades 2-5)
-- This book represents an opportunity to inform students about animal
species that are endangered or have gone extinct, and to integrate all
areas of the curriculum in the process. With projects that involve
literature, science facts, creative writing, research skills, art, and
math, students will find out why animals become endangered or extinct,
why are some of them hunted, how does the environment effect them, and
what is being done -- and can be done in the future -- to save them.

There is a five-page section of reproducible pages for hand-made books
about individual animals, such as the Florida Manatee, the Black
Rhinoceros, the Mountain Gorilla, the Giant Panda and six others. Each
is illustrated, as is the entire book, with detailed, accurate line art
of endangered or extinct species.

Project titles include: Endangered Animals - Pencil Pals, Draw these
Endangered Animals, Who Shall We Save?, In My Home Town, Fact or
Opinion, and many others. There is a form for writing a letter to
conservation groups, game refuges, or parks, a list of organizations
devoted to preserving wildlife, and an extensive bibliography of titles
for you and our students to explore.
