iCivics is a site that has a treasure trove of resources for both students and teachers. There are interactive games that help students understand essential rights and responsibilities of citizenship in the United States.
In 2009, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor founded iCivics to reverse Americans’ declining civic knowledge and participation. Teachers can find in-depth lessons about our nation that are very comprehensive in scope, yet easily understood by students.
Many lessons come with handouts that provide story lines of important historic events, laws, and/or people. The lesson writing is insightful, easily understood, historically accurate, and fun, yet challenging, for students. Teachers are provided materials that guide them through these lessons to help students receive high quality instruction.
iCivics has fun interactive games that guide and help students know how “We the People” can participate in our government.
Don’t just learn civics - play civics!
Run for president. Pass new laws. Argue real cases.
