In honor of Arizona’s upcoming 100th birthday, state lawmakers are creating a project to teach Arizona students about government and citizenship.
Legislative leaders say the Arizona Legislative Centennial Civic Project, aimed at students in kindergarten through 12th grade, will also cover the legislative process and Arizona history.
Under the program, every school in the state will be given a two-hour civics DVD explaining how a bill becomes a law, Arizona’s road to statehood and interviews with elected officials, among other content.
The film will also be available for the public to request copies.
Lawmakers say the program is being funded by donations.
The state Legislature is also planning to add a “Students Page” to its website that features material on the DVD.
