It is important that schools and communities develop a commitment to civic values. How can K-5 schools effectively engage students in civic participation? A new support document, “Kids In Action: A Guide For Involving Elementary Students in Civic Participation,” has been created to address this question. This K-5 Social Studies document includes An Overview of the Citizenship Act of 2001; Results from the NCDPI Civics Education survey; Activities for Teaching Current Events, Class Projects, Tips for Parents and much more.
