Grassfield High School in Chesapeake will attempt to set a Guinness World Record tomorrow, April 29th! Their attempt to hold the world’s largest government lesson will take place at 8:45 a.m. and more than 700 students are expected to show up and learn.
The overall lesson is intended to help students recognize the role of government, the influence of the U.S. Constitution, and the importance of civic duty.
The goal in attempting this record is to draw attention to the importance of government and the United States Constitution in citizens’ daily lives by allowing participants to use critical thinking to resolve problems that unwittingly contribute to the foundation and formulation of governmental entities, such as those considered by the Founding Fathers.
Grassfield will be setting a brand new record with Guinness World Records if the attempt is successful.
The average government class at Grassfield High School seats approximately 25 students.
Good luck, Grassfield!
