Ben’s Guide to U. S. Government for Kids is the educational component of GPO Access, the Government Printing Office’s (GPO) free online service of official Government information from all three branches of the U. S. Government. Ben’s Guide provides information and activities specifically tailored for educators, parents, and students in K-12. These resources can help teach about our government and how it works. They can also teach about the primary source materials on GPO Access, and how citizens can use GPO Access in carrying out their civic responsibilities. And, just as GPO Access provides locator services to U. S. Government sites, Ben’s Guide provides a similar service to U. S. Government Web sites developed for kids.
