Civics & American Government for Young Students NEWMINI-COURSE

Grades 6–8
As students living in and around Washington, D.C., you regularly get a front-row seat to the events of history and politics unfolding in your hometown. This summer session is designed to introduce you to the workings of government using creative, hands-on activities that simulate such processes as: how we elect a president, how a bill becomes a law, and how judges are nominated and confirmed. Each day of the week, we’ll examine a different topic including the three branches of government, the system of checks and balances that were established to safeguard democracy, the Bill of Rights, and how the Electoral College works. You may not be able to vote yet, but as an informed citizen you are part of the bedrock of democracy in the United States. Let’s learn together! *Course is repetitive, select only one of the weeks.
