Your child can learn things about Historical Documents, Branches of Government, How Laws Are Made, National versus State Government, Election Process, Citizenship, and Symbols of the U.S. Government. They can play games and activities or look words up in the site's glossary. Not enough material here for you? Don't worry there are also links to other U.S. Government Web Sites for Kids here too!
