Ben's Guide to the U.S. Government - for kids!

At Ben's Guide to the U.S. Government, the snippets of information are broken down by grade groupings (from K-12), with the last section for parents and teachers.

A quick look through the site shows that it's well organized and thorough. As usual, I didn't get much past the K-2 level, where I was stopped by the history of The Liberty Bell. Maybe I learned it and maybe I didn't, but isn't it cool that:

The Bell was cast in London, England in 1752. It is made mostly of copper and tin. After it arrived in the U.S., the Bell cracked. A new bell was made from the metal in the old one, but this one also cracked. A third bell was built from the same metal, and now this one has a crack too!
Boy, I gotta start paying attention!
