This is an excellent social studies resource for all grades, but in particular early childhood and the younger elementary school grades. There is an emphasis on branches of government, the nation, citizenship, the election process, and games and activities to demystify the how governing through democracy occurs.

How to use the site:
Choose a grade level from the Kite icons that serve as a tool bar at the top of the web site. Grade levels then show up as a blackboard with links to the topics listed on the blackboard graphic. There is always the option to choose "Print Games" as opposed to "Interactive" depending on site-specific needs. While the older grades deal with more abstract concepts, materials for younger visitors are colorful and simple enough to convey content.
