Children become aware of local government’s programs and services in their communities through classroom curriculum, discussions with adults and everyday experiences.
As school and home are primary places youth learn about government structure and functions, the resources in this section are available to help teachers and families explain the role of local government.
Do you want to make your community a better place to live? In Counties Work, you decide about the programs and services that affect everyone! Your choices shape the community, and your citizens’ satisfaction determines whether you’ll get re-elected for a second term. Choose wisely.
This website offers activities for grade school children to learn about government including the difference between cities and counties. Resources are tailored to three audiences of youth, parents and teachers.
