Second Grade Civics
Former state representative, Jay McNamar came to visit the second graders at WCA North Elementary to explain state government. He explained how the government helps its citizens, compared and contrasted rules, ordinances and laws, outlined a “typical” day in the role of a state representative, and concluded with a fun activity where the students were able to go through the process of making a law. Their roles in the house and senate wrote the law that ice-cream should be served at all lunches. Since it passed, and governor Mrs. Kreft signed the bill into law, they all got ice-cream the next day during school lunch. It was a fun and meaningful experience for all.
