We the People

With those three famous words we embarked on a voyage of discovery to create a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people". Join us as we explore the evolution of democracy from cavemen, through Greeks and Romans, kings and tribes, and on into the people and events that shaped our new nation. We The People looks closely at the inner workings of the system of self-government that they established and continues to guide us today. From Founding Fathers to present day heroes, you'll laugh as you learn how each of us in this "land of opportunity" has the opportunity to make this country into the true "American Dream". A truly delightful Social Studies extravaganza!
