Middle School students love to play computer games
+ we love it when they learn enthusiastically about government and civic responsibility

Playing good games is an incredible way to learn. Great games are leveled, sequenced, users can control their learning and they can usually play at their own pace. The score part is somewhat disagreeable but on the whole they can be amazing learning experiences.
Check out iCivics and their Democracy Lab as you plan your study of American Government and civic responsibility! They have really engaging games that both explain the three branches of American Government and show young users how they can participate in their communities.
