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:

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

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 your ability to customize it to meet local standards, school board policies, 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 researching, analyzing, and citing high-quality sources to writing persuasive works, supported by sound evidence.

Everything for each challenge is included to scaffold and support students as they independently engage in their world using their words.
