It’s never too early to get involved! The Edward M. Kennedy Institute’s Future Senator program introduces students in grades 3-5 to the legislative process. Inside our full-scale Senate Chamber or on the virtual Senate floor, young “Future Senators” are introduced to an issue relevant to kids: whether the US government should require a longer school day. Featuring a segment from PBS’s Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman, the program includes “expert witnesses” on the issue for kids to interview and time for a spirited debate about what the “Future Senators” have learned. The program concludes with a culminating voice vote in the Senate Chamber, like real senators do. Go here to book a session for your students!
