The White House - Kids

While the current White House web site does not have an area specifically designed for students, many parts of the web site will be of interest. This example talks about the history of the White House and has a trivia section. What would you do if you had to deal with 35 bathrooms?

State and Local Government Internet Directory

This web site provides convenient one-stop access to the websites of thousands of state agencies and city and county governments. A great resource for that next Webquest.

The Internet is not only ideally suitable for gathering data but also for learning and transmitting policy suggestions. The environment, after all, is not bounded by local and state borders.

If your students discover some important findings, they can go right to "the center" and express their outcomes and interpretations.
