6-8 Grade Activities

While a Civics education is part of every academic year, it is especially important this year with our upcoming presidential election. 

When children enter Middle School or Junior High, they are often able to participate in Student Council, which is hands-on learning about government, elections and civics. Your child doesn't need to run for School Council President or help with the campaign to be involved. The simple but powerful act of voting is engagement. 

If your child is home schooling, your child can still participate in a Student Council. Many homeschool co-ops offer a homeschool student council. Don't belong to a co-op or your co-op doesn't have one? Start one! 

Student Council
Student Council or Student Government is a great way to become involved in civics.
