Product Description
Challenge your students to their soon-to-be-favorite civics political service learning project. Set up as a friendly competition of CIVGO (Civics BINGO!), students will become informed, engaged citizens, completing a wide variety of political and community volunteer hours and projects.

Featured Service Projects:

- Write Letters to the Editor and Op-Ed essays
- Research current issues and write to elected officials
- Attend school board, city council, and legislative town hall meetings
- Interact with elected officials on social media
- Send a thank you note to an American hero

************************************

Greatness is being an informed and active participant in the democratic process.

No better way to teach about American Government, than to live it! Turn your students into citizens with this semester-long project that will satisfy any political or community service hours requirement.

The beauty of this project is you ability to customize it to meet local standards, time restraints, and interests. Challenges are universal enough to be completed by any student, yet meaningful enough to create real democratic participation!

Many of the challenges also engage high-level, academic skills, from research to analyzing sources, to writing persuasive works. Everything is included to scaffold and support students as they engage in their world using their words.
