What do you know about good citizenship? Do you know as much as the immigrants to our country? Teens can find out by taking our September Citizenship Quiz. For adults, try taking the test at MSNBC, Do you have what it takes to become a citizen?

These are actual questions from the U.S. Naturalization Test. People from other countries who want to become U.S. citizens must pass this test. Do you know the answers?

Stop by your library for color sheets and a list of good books about the USA for children too.

Join us as we celebrate peace and freedom in honor of Patriot Day, in remembrance of 9/11, and as part of The September Project.
