Texas Home Educators is a service organization. As such, we know that part of every child’s education is training in good citizenship. So, we have developed the Cookies for Congress Program.
August is the only month you can be sure your Congress Member is in district. We have contacted all 31 Congress Members from Texas and asked if YOU could visit.
Home Educators of Texas can visit their Congress Member, bring homemade cookies, get a lesson in how congress works, and allow your child to ask questions of the Congress Member or their staff.
This is an educational field trip, a chance to learn what a Congress Member does and how Congress works.
Please do not reserve a spot if you are not committed to attending, as spaces are very limited.
Just SIGN UP, find your Congress Member and then let the children decide what cookies to bring.
If you need resources to prepare your children ahead of time, there is the Ben website, the National Archives, and the PBS Lesson Plan. If you have a favorite lesson plan about Congress, please leave a link in the comments.
