How I Use It
I would love to take some of the lesson plans from iCivics to incorporate in my classroom as well as use the games to expand the students excitement about government and its working parts.
My Take
The lesson plans can be a little difficult to follow because of the amount of information but that also could help or lead to more group work or homework. I feel the website is just a great go to especially living in a gaming world, it speaks the children's language without leaving behind the instruction.
