Kids have been the inspiration for Recess for All Florida Students, but they have also been our allies. We have had kids speak at board meetings, address the House in committee meetings, meet with legislators, attend Recess Rallies, interview with reporters and much, much more.
Involve your kids and teach them about advocacy and government. How does a bill become a law? Here is a great handbook for kids that explains the process. Introduce them to Kid President and his love of politics. . And who could forget the Schoolhouse Rock song “I’m Just a Bill?”
Have them contact those who represent them. We have delivered letters from kids in our districts to our school board members locally and to our legislators in Tallahassee! Here is a template to give to your kids to get them started.
