Here is one website that librarians definitely want to bookmark! A wealth of resources, interactive elements, civics quiz material, all from government reliable sources.
This is their stated mission:
To promote government information in order to engage K-12 students in learning about history, culture, science, and government through games and other interactive activities; to assist teachers and school librarians with locating teaching aids, lesson plans, and exciting tools to enhance students’ learning, and to provide librarians with a collection of free government resources to advance their reference interview and collection development decisions. The project was conceived as a promotional tool for the value of government documents to K-12 students and teachers in addressing the requirement to integrate Constitution Day into public school curricula.
There are various contests for students that are promoted within the website, too.
Currently, there are 13 various classroom/library activities on the website.
A great website linking to many resources, in one very navigable place.
