To study civics is to learn the rights and duties of being a citizen. Unfortunately, civics education is much ignored except in the most cursory of ways in the US educational system, which is to the detriment of us all. This section has free resources to inspire and teach children (and maybe even the adults in their lives!) to be good citizens: of their community, their town or city, their state, or their country. If you are visiting this website from outside the United States, be warned that this is a very US-centric page, because that's all that I've personally taught. Someday I would like to offer more resources for other countries. Click here for free Civics Resources.

All states have standards to teach their state's history, but, more importantly, history begins at home!

Check out the National Park Service properties for sites that may be related to local history, too. Click here for free these Resources.

Culture is everywhere around us: so thick that we don't even recognize it! The religions we follow, the holidays we celebrate, the traditions and values we hold. Younger children love learning about how other people (especially other children) live, and older students need to learn to recognize, understand, and be respectful of cultural differences. Click here for free these Resources.

Geography is the study not only of the physical formations and mapping of the earth, but the way that people interact with it and even change it.  Click here for free these Resources.

Everyone knows that the younger you start a language, the easier it is to learn. So why do most US schools wait until middle or even high school to start learning a second language? This section contains free resources to introduce your child to a number of world languages. Click here for free these Resources.
