Presenting: On the Road to Congress, a new board game from the Secretary of State’s Office!

The game lets you seize the wheel of the electoral process! Drive your campaign car through the path that a campaign for congressional office must follow, from the earliest planning and paperwork stages to the final suspenseful moments when the vote is counted! It’s a race to the finish and the winner goes to the U.S. Congress! Do you have what it takes to make it to Washington D.C.?!

This game was designed to complement a classroom civics unit. Prior to its use as an educational tool students should have a basic understanding of the role of the electoral process in our democracy. The game comes with a short student packet and vocabulary list to supplement learning by providing more detailed information about what it takes to plan and implement a political campaign for congress. A teacher’s guide highlights the educational content and the Vermont Department of Education Grade Expectations that the game encompasses.

Vermont History, Facts and Fun is the newest activity book in our line of civics educational materials created just for youth.  This activity book, featuring Champ the legendary monster who abides in Lake Champlain, is designed to help 3rd -5th graders learn about Vermont�s amazing history, culture and geography.    

The Adventures of Bill: The Real-Life Account of How a Vermont Bill Becomes a Law is a comic-like booklet that makes learning about Vermont's Legislative process a whole lot of fun! Students will discover just how many people it takes to make a bill become a law and see how they can become involved.

Copies of these books are available for elementary schools free of charge as part of their curriculum on Vermont history and civics.
