How I Use It
You can have the students create usernames or they can play as "Guest." The only difference is that they can save a game in the middle if they have a username but the gameplay is the same either way. Even if you don't use the lesson plans and other information, the games are a fun way to reinforce different aspects of Civics.
My Take
I used many of the lessons and activities in my Social Studies classroom last year. I work with special needs students so some of the lessons need to be slightly modified but they love the practical application of what they have learned through the games on the website. I have many students who log in and play the games in their free time.
