My Civics Pledge
I pledge to engage in my community now or in the future by…..
Using images from the videos you have just seen, design a Civic Pledge. A pledge is a promise or agreement to do something. In your pledge you will need to provide examples of how you see yourself getting involved in your community either now or in the future. Note: The pledge creator will allow you to select images. See the Creator Instructions on how to navigate this tool.
Once you have created your pledge, share it with your teacher, a friend, a parent or guardian to begin your journey of civic engagement.
