Each of the fifteen units is intended to be studied for one week.
What the student is to do each week and each day is clearly outlined. The Unit Introduction page gives a brief overview of the unit, the lessons in that unit, and a suggestion for a project that is relevant to that unit.
The purpose of Exploring Government is to educate and inspire your student concerning the government of the United States as well as the governments of the individual states and our local communities. We want to help your student be well-equipped as a Christian citizen after studying this material.
