America’s Founders: Mentors for Children – DVD
How do we encourage moral strength and ethical behavior?
Our American Founders lived these principles. They are our mentors.
Stories transfer our values and culture to succeeding generations. America’s stories bring to life the founding of a new government in a new world. Men, women and children, known and unknown, showcase the virtues of integrity, courage, perseverance and leadership. Bible scriptures clarify the virtues and three questions follow each story to apply lessons learned to the viewer.
Thrill to the stories of the boys of Boston, who stood up to General Gage, the commander of British forces in America, Mary Rowlandson, who survived kidnapping by Indians, and Nathaniel Greene, who rose from private to general to win the Revolutionary War in the South. Trudge through snowdrifts with 25 year old Henry Knox, Washington’s Chief of Artillery, as he brought cannon to the Continental Army to reclaim Boston, and more. Fifteen stories are included; the DVD is divided into sections for easy access to the material.
Perfect for use by individuals, families, home schools and community groups, the stories appeal to all ages. Use as independent or guided study. Enhance any course in American History, the U.S. Constitution or Christian values..
