Fantastic site for fun & education

My daughter & her friends can't stop raving about this site which I introduced to them on Constitution Day! Many games & many topics to choose from. Manage a team of constitutional lawyers or support your side of a real Supreme Court case with relevant arguments. The more you play, the more you learn & the more points you earn. Best of all, the site lets kids spend their earned points on community service projects they care about from around the country. It's refreshing to see a site for kids that was actually designed with the kids' best interests, including privacy, in mind. Someone really got this one right, on all counts!

High Schoolers and Homeschoolers Love it too!

My kids are in high school and really enjoy this game. I introduced it to them for homeschooling during the election last November to use for 2 weeks. But... they absolutely LOVED it so much, they still use it without me asking. In fact my eldest is doing her official government curriculum and she feels better about what she is learning because she was familiar with the concepts from iCivics. A winner!

Hi. This website is amazing! There are so much things to do on this website. The cirriculum is from being the president for a day, (Executive Command) to helping a fairy lead others to their new home in America. (Immegration Nation) I was once reading about this website and I discovered that it was founded by none other than Sandra Day O Connor. Another cool thing is after a game the number of points you earned is transformed into "Impact" points. "Impact" points are used to support charities from helping hand in Africa(Water for Africa) to helping kids in times of need. (Kids Companion). If you are a teacher,student or just a supporter use Icivics today!
