Interactive Exploration of Congress and Civic Engagement

KidCitizen introduces a new way for K–5 students to engage with US history. In KidCitizen’s interactive episodes, children explore civics and government concepts by investigating primary source photographs from the Library of Congress and connect what they find with their daily lives. The episodes capitalize on the active and social nature of young children’s learning. They use primary sources for rich demonstrations, interactions, and models of literacy in hands-on activities that make academic content meaningful, build on prior experiences, and foster visual literacy and historical inquiry. All KidCitizen episodes run on PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, and iOS and Android mobile devices. Spanish-language versions are coming soon.

Plus: With the cloud-based KidCitizen Editor, educators can create their own episodes and game-based activities using primary source photographs that are relevant to their students and community. The KidCitizen Editor runs on the cloud-based Muzzy Lane Author platform. Access to the KidCitizen Editor is free.
