Welcome to Congress

Patsy T. Mink campaigning with family and supporters

Overview

Students are introduced to Congress through primary source analysis and discover how a member of Congress is part of two communities- their home community that they serve, and the community of Congress. Ideas for further connection, such as finding and writing a letter to their congressional representative, can be found in the Teacher’s Guide.
