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 Lessons are aimed at an in-depth understanding of local, state and national governments, necessary and historical documents (local charters, Ohio Constitution, The Declaration of independence and the U.S. Constitution) as well as lessons on citizenship rights and responsibilities.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.
