3-5 Grade Activities

While a Civics education is part of every academic year, it is especially important this year with our upcoming presidential election. During a US presidential election year, it is a special time in your child’s life to see how our government works.

Children in these grades are curious and excited to learn! Use this time to talk about voting. When a political ad comes on the radio or TV, point it out and explain to your child what the ad is saying, talk about what party/person you support and encourage them to communicate to you about what they think. Who would they vote for? Why?

Future Voter
If children learn about the importance of voting, their parents are more likely to vote too!
