Product Description

This is a super fun resource to help teach Civic Duties and Responsibilities to any middle or high school Civics or American Government class! Aligned to the Florida State Standards SS.7.C.2.2 and SS.7.C.2.3 Citizen Obligations & Responsibilities, this 3-page article and matching activity keeps students engaged as they learn about the obligations and responsibilities of citizenship.

The 5 Civic Duties covered are:

* Paying Taxes

* Obeying the Law

* Jury Duty

* Selective Service

* Attending School

The 5 Civic Responsibilities covered are:

* Voting

* Helping Your Community

* Respecting the Rights of Others

* Being Informed

* Taking Part in Government

Questions are interspersed throughout the article, so that students are kept engaged with the text. The questions include:

* What is the difference between a duty and a responsibility?

* What would happen if we stopped fulfilling our civic duties?

* Define "common good".

* Choose one of the responsibilities of citizenship listed and write 1-2 sentences on how you think it helps benefit the common good.

In this way, the students are asked to evaluate the benefits and impacts of the civic obligations and responsibilities.

The resource closes with a Civic Duties Picture Analysis Activity. Students are presented with five images, each representing a different civic duty. They analyze each image and identify which duty it symbolizes. This is a great way to help the students make visual connections to the concepts!

This resource is presented as a PDF and includes an answer key. It works printed in Color or Black & White. (I have to print everything in B&W for my classroom. When you go to print, select "Print in Black & White", and the pictures will look just fine!)
