from Ohio History Connection

Program image

In So You Know the Government, teams of students will compete against each other as they answer questions about the origins, structure, and responsibilities of federal, state and local government. Our game shows provide teachers with an active and engaging way to assess student success in an informal setting.


Our high-energy host will provide additional clarifications in between questions to explain concepts that require additional clarification, make connections between the questions and current events, and create an overall friendly but competitive environment where students can showcase their knowledge, learn new things and have fun.

We will adapt the game according the needs of each classroom. and whether the program must be delivered to just one connection between the whole classroom and our educators or if we need to provide multiple connections for students that are not physically in the classroom.

If utilizing one of these tools, note that there is no need to download any software prior or during the class.
