Civics Made Fun
Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor had a vision: That middle school students would have access to information and learning activities about civics that are fun and educational. Almost a year ago (the site was launched at the end of February 2009), her vision became reality at http://www.ourcourts.org/, Our Courts: 21st Century Civics. The free interactive civics resources are intended to help children understand the branches of our government and encourage a love of civics for their lifetimes. O'Connor even answers questions via a blog on the website.
