6th grade Social Studies has been studying the United States government. The students enjoyed seeing how a bill becomes a law in a game where they were able to mimic the process by creating a lunch menu and having it approved or vetoed by another group (President) and finally approved by yet another group, the nutritionists (Supreme Court).
We are starting a unit on citizenship to see how they, as juveniles, can help their community at even a young age. We will be doing a project in the spring to raise awareness of others in need and hopefully invoke generosity in our students. We will choose a project to raise money for a needy person/group in our community.
