Summer Break Ends — for Congress, Too

Student: Anya

It's back to school — er, work — for Congress this week. Write a news story announcing that Congress is back at work and what does that mean? You will be answering the W's of a good news story through Congress:

  • Who: Congress (and "who" specifically for California?) Use the U.S. government's website for kids to write this story.
  • What: Congress — the 111th Congress, second session — is back to work this week. What does that mean? Hint: Read this article on Kids in the House for help in explaining what Congress does.
  • When: This week.
  • Where: Explain — and show — where. Use both words and pictures to do this.
  • Why: Again, use the U.S. government's website for kids to help you answer this portion of your story. What is the job of Congress?
