Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Law Craft- real feel how and why a law happens.

I have used Law Craft with my 5th Grade class as part of our unit on Forming a New Government. The game play not only allows students to be in control and make many decision that are currently relevant, but it puts into practice many underlying issues that are part of law making. Values and how they motivate group decision making in Congress are well represented along with the way they sort into he 2 current major parties. The game play offers hands on experience that is rare in history and government learning. I do recommend talking about the process of a law before hand and a follow up discussion afterwards to give depth to their learn experience.
