Make Every (Kid’s) Vote Count

WoogiWhat better lesson in government and civics could there be for a social studies class than to have every elementary school student vote in the upcoming presidential election. That’s the idea behind Woogi World, a virtual social world of students. The site’s Every Kid Votes campaign explains the election process by using an avatar that represents the child, called a Woogi. After selecting one, the child needs to play games to win enough points to earn the right to vote. It’s free and the site can help teach children about Internet safety in a calm and reassuring way.
