Age Level: 10–14  Grade Level: 9–12

What does it mean to be an American citizen? Is there more to it than reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the national anthem? Whether they're paying their taxes or protesting for change, the average American is more than a mere citizen, they are actively involved in shaping the country in big and small ways, on a daily basis. Through discussions of what a taxpayer does, how a military service member works, the roles of protestors and petitioners, and the importance of jurors in the justice system, students will learn about the everyday people whose commitment to civic duty keeps the country running.
