MY OHIO: A Closer Look at Local, State and National Citizenship Activities through an Ohio Lens

The 3rd grade ma­te­r­ial is cen­tered on the local com­mu­nity while the 4th grade con­tent is Ohio and the Na­tional Gov­ern­ment through an Ohio lens; per­fect for the new stan­dards. The ac­tiv­i­ties of­fered are not the typ­i­cal paper/pen­cil type ac­tiv­i­ties. Lessons are aimed at an in-depth un­der­stand­ing of local, state and na­tional gov­ern­ments, nec­es­sary and his­tor­i­cal doc­u­ments (local char­ters, Ohio Con­sti­tu­tion, The De­c­la­ra­tion of in­de­pen­dence and the U.S. Con­sti­tu­tion) as well as lessons on cit­i­zen­ship rights and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Also in­cluded are lessons that pre­pare stu­dents as fu­ture global cit­i­zens and cit­i­zen with a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the cul­tural, re­li­gious, and eth­nic di­ver­sity that sur­rounds us – es­pe­cially in Ohio. MY OHIO is aligned to the 2010 Ohio Aca­d­e­mic Con­tent Stan­dards for the So­cial Stud­ies.

My Ohio pro­vides stu­dents with won­der­ful op­por­tu­ni­ties to learn about our gov­ern­ment and ways to be a bet­ter cit­i­zen. The con­tin­u­ously up­dated ma­te­r­ial can be taught in var­i­ous ways, pro­vid­ing stu­dents with many learn­ing sit­u­a­tions, and in­cor­po­rat­ing learn­ing from mul­ti­ple in­tel­li­gences. I highly rec­om­mend this pro­gram for the third, fourth and fifth grade stu­dents of Ohio." - John Kramer, Grade 3/4 So­cial Stud­ies teacher, Mo­hawk Local Schools
