FREE Patriotic K-12 Social Studies/History/Civics lesson plans!

This looks to be an amazing resource from the American Heritage Foundation!  I just ordered my free CD and thought I would pass the info along to you.  You can also download any or all of the grade levels you wish. 

Here's more information on it:

-May be modified or taught in segments

-Develops civics skills in critical thinking, active listening and problem solving

-Improves understanding of Freedom, Unity, Progress and Responsibility

-Award winning design and presentation

America's Heritage: An Adventure in Liberty is a tested lesson plan resource and supplement for Kindergarten-12th grade teachers of social studies, U. S. history, U. S. government, political science, economics, geography, speech, and/or related subjects. Written by fellow teachers, the resource consists of age-appropriate and modifiable lesson plans grouped into three separate books according to level: elementary, middle, and high school. Each elementary school lesson plan correlates practically with the nationally applicable Core Knowledge Skills (grades K-6) (national edition). Each middle and high school lesson plan correlates with the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) standards (national edition). All lessons emphasize one or more themes of freedom, unity, progress, and responsibility. The resource aims not simply to present historical facts but to provide opportunities for students to explore and understand the factual and philosophical significance and meaning behind events, causes, and effects—the whys—relating to and influencing the early history of the United States.
