Presented by Right Brain Cirriculum.Students work to create their own Lego city while meeting as a city council to govern their town. As they build, they must make challenging budgeting decisions, prioritizing between the construction of key city buildings as they weigh costs and consider designs. The class learns about democratic elections as students prepare to run for mayor or help manage a friend's campaign.

 Candidates take positions on campaign issues as the city holds a mayoral debate! Meanwhile, students study how laws are made and work together to create their own city constitution. As the city takes form, students learn about the symbols on national and state flags and create their own city flag. A fun and engaging way to learn about civics!
