This site has very accurate information about topics involving historical documents, the three branches of government, how laws are made, and voting rights. It includes a glossary for vocabulary terms and quizes and games at the end of lessons. This site is very useful as a review for Civics and Economics.

I actually used this site in my teaching-learning activities. I found it to be
extremely helpful, interactive, visually stimulating, and age-appropriate for my
5th grade students.
The materials accurately presented the concepts of U.S. government and its 3
branches. Tis activity presented the material better than any textbook or
worksheet. Using this website will enhance any learning or teaching of these
concepts. It is government-owned (reliable). This site was easy to use.

I spent about 15 minutes playing with this site, and I had to force myself to
stop. I gave it only a cursory look but I was quite impressed with the content
and presentation. I think it's best use would be to motivate underachievers to
become interested in U.S. government.

Technical Remarks:

It doesn't seem to require too many plug-ins, and doesn't require tons of
download time.
