The Democracy Project offers lessons and units for grades K-12 that are aligned to the Delaware civics standards. The lessons featured here have been field tested in Delaware classrooms. Additional lessons will be added periodically. Staff from The Democracy Project are available to offer guided practice in the use of the lessons.

These materials are viewable/downloadable in either Microsoft Word or Adobe Reader. (If you need help with viewing/downloading PDF files, see IPA’s instructions for viewing/downloading PDFs.)
