This week we will begin learning about citizenship in the United States. As a foundation for studying the rights and responsibilities of citizens, you will learn what it means to be a citizen and how citizenship is obtained. We will also examine how citizenship has changed over time.

Imagine…you weren't born in America…
You were raised overseas in another country, with different rules, different responsibilities, and different rights. That would be crazy right?! Well, during this activity, you and your shoulder partner are going to help guide some potential citizens through the naturalization process and see if you can help them understand what they need to do. If you are looking for more information on the Naturalization interview and test, that can also be found on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website, by clicking here!
