Directions for iCivics on Tuesday 9/8/2020

Today, we will be playing iCivics.  Students will still need to sign into zoom at the beginning of class for attendance and so that I can help everyone create their iCivics accounts.  Once students feel comfortable on their own, they can sign out of zoom and play for the remainder of the class period.  Here are the directions to get started just in case students are unable to log into zoom:

  • Go to www.icivics.org
  • Click on the “sign in” tab (top right corner)
  • Click the “register as a student” tab (bottom right)
  • Once on this screen do not put in your name or email address!!!  Instead, click “Wait, I Have A Class Code”
  • Now input your name and our class code: Burger23060
  • Next choose a login name.  Whatever name you choose you must write it down exactly as it is shown for future reference.  When you are done move to the next page.
  • Now you must create a password.  Please choose the password 123456.  It will be your username that will be unique to you and everyone in our class will have the same password.  Also, don’t forget to click the “agree to terms” box before clicking finish.
  • Once your account has been created, please click on the “Continue to My Assignments” tab.
  • Next, click the “classes” tab
  • Please play the game “Immigration Nation” first.  When asked if you would like help learning how to play, please click yes.
  • Please play “Do I Have a Right” nextPlay the “full edition” not the “bill of rights” edition.
  • Also, click the “yes, teach me” tab when prompted so you have a full understanding of how the game works.  
  • If there is any more time left after you have played both games assigned, please check out the icivics game of your choosing or play the other two games again
  • Other games are located under the “play” tab.
