If a kid can understand the county they live in... then they can understand the world! After all, this unit is a mini-microcosm of geography, government, history, economics, and so much more. It is the place where even a child is a bona fide citizen and has rights, responsibilities, and privileges. It's where you live, go to school, work, pay taxes, vote, get your first driver's license, and many other useful, important, everyday things that make our own personal world go 'round. When kids learn how this geo-political unit works to aid and benefit citizens of all ages, it is to their great advantage. This book includes reproducible county/parish/borough map and activities; the who, what, when, where, and why background; advantages, benefits, and responsibilities of being a citizen; where to go for help...and to help out; reproducible activities such as creating an automobile license plate, applying for a library card, registering to vote, a trip to the Health Department, a trip to the courthouse, and much more! Available for every county, parish and borough in the U.S.!
