To align with the 4th grade social studies unit of study on Connecticut government, and to expand background knowledge, students from Charter Oak International Academy will participate in hands-on discovery activities and role-playing at the Connecticut Historical Society in Hartford as well as a visit to the State Capitol to meet with local government representatives and to tour the building. As a result of this project students will be able to investigate, reason, critique and communicate about the role of government in our state. They will understand their rights and responsibilities as citizens.
