    Good Neighbor
    Step 3 –
     See what makes your state special. There are 50 states in the United States. They’re all neighbors to one another, and each one is special in its own way. When you put them together, they make a big community – and your part of it. See what makes your state unique in this step. (Tour)


    Playing the Past
    Step 5 – 
    Become your character: Now, act as your character. Wear your costume and plan to share one thing about your life. You could teach some friends a game you learned, share the food you made with your family, or tell anything else you can dream up to others. (Tour)
