At iCivics, students are placed in the driver's seat and immersed in an interactive experience without ever leaving their location.

iCivics County Solutions unit is a free lesson-based civics project that students can complete at their own pace. Students select a community issue, problem, or concern that they'd like to solve or improve, examine the broad context of their issue—including the role of county and other levels of government—and focus on bringing about local change using strategies tailored to their individual issues. We've broken down the project into nine manageable steps for students in grades 6-8 and ten more research-intensive steps for high school students, with one lesson per step. This project-based unit is perfect for troops and girls working to earn their Bronze, Silver, or Gold Awards. Sign up for a free iCivics Parent or Educator account to access the resources.
