Your Virtual Backpack for a Summer of Games
We know this summer may be different due to COVID-19, so we wanted to share some special activities that you can plan to do, wherever you might be. The activities can be completed on your own or with friends and family. They offer you the ability to sharpen your civic skills, give back to charities working to provide essential services, spend time learning with your family, and of course have fun!
Coming Soon! Play Games, Give Back
This summer, when you play iCivics games, you’ll have the opportunity to help organizations that are providing essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can earn points by playing games and then donate your points to charities. Be sure to save your iCivics username and password as you’ll need to login to iCivics to participate. Look for an official announcement on icivics.org/games in June.
Just like Summer, Election Season Will Heat Up
The next presidential election is coming in November! Summer is the perfect time to sharpen your election knowledge and become a more informed voter. Play the following iCivics games to get ready:
BINGO, Leaderboads, Game Nights, and more!
Here are 6 ways families can use iCivics at home. Print BINGO cards out for everyone and host a family game night, or dive into one of our other exciting activities! Parents can register with iCivics for a free account to access all the games and other family-friendly civic learning resources at: icivics.org/family.
Conquer the Game Odyssey
The Game Odyssey turns our games into an exciting quest for civics knowledge! Play your way through 9 Quests, claim special badges, and learn important civics lessons on the journey. Share the Odyssey with your friends and challenge them to beat your scores.
