Did you ever wonder what it means to be a good citizen? You will soon find the answer to this question. To be a good citizen, you need to be involved in your community. Also, a good citizen respects other people's property. Finally, to be a good citizen, you need to know what's happening in your community. If you're a good citizen, the community will be a better place to live.

It's important to know what's happening in your community. At least that's what a good citizen would do. A good citizen would know what's happening whether it's good or bad. If everyone were a bad citizen, there would be much confusion. Also, if everyone were a good citizen there would be no confusion. That is why you should be a good citizen. You don't want confusion in your community. That's why it's important to be a good citizen.

A good citizen is involved in their community. They could make the town a better place by cleaning it up. Also, a good citizen could also organize the town events. If everyone were a good citizen, the town would be a much better place to live. That is why it's important to be a good citizen. In addition, if everyone were a bad citizen, the town wouldn't be good place to live. It wouldn't be a good thing to live in a bad community. So, you have to be a good citizen.

A good citizen respects other people's property. So, you need to be a good citizen. If you weren't a good citizen, the communities would be a bad place to live. That's why you need to be a good citizen. Furthermore, if everyone were a good citizen, nothing would ever be stolen. That is also why you should be a good citizen. If there were no thieves, how could you're property be stolen? Those are some reasons you should be a good citizen.

Still want to know how to be a good citizen? Well, you just read the answer to it in those three paragraphs! The time has come for you to know the answer to the other question as well. To be a good citizen, you need to do these three things: First, be involved in your community. Second, you need to respect other people's property. Finally, you need to know what's happening in your community. That is what it takes to be a good citizen.

Can an eleven-year-old, like me, be a good citizen? Of course they can! They can get involved with community issues and debate about wars. All kids can also follow the laws. Finally, I think everyone should be nice to other people. This essay will only take a few minutes of your time.

One way to be a good citizen is to get involved with wars and community issues. Maybe you're thinking, "Who cares?" right now just like thousands of others. I can only tell you a few of the people who do care. The troops in Iraq who risk their lives to protect us are a good example of this. Others are the people whose lives are affected by the wars. Also, the government cares because it helps a lot of people. Here are some ways you can get involved. You can listen to news or radio broadcasts for information. People can also read newspaper articles. The main way to get involved is to have a part in the issue.

Another way to be a good citizen is to obey the law. If you do not follow the law, there will always be consequences. Even if you escape, you will have to go into hiding. Here are only three laws, but they are some you should always follow. You should never commit murder because you are killing innocent people. You should never steal either, because it is someone's property you would be taking. Last of all, you shouldn't go over the speed limit. The speed limit is a safety measure, and without it, it becomes easier to crash and possibly kill people.

And lastly, you should always be nice to people. Because you wouldn't want to be treated unkindly, you shouldn't treat others that way either. Here are three ways you can be nice to people: One way is to help people that need help. That will make their lives a lot easier. Another way is to share with them so they can enjoy what you have. It will make them happier also. And the last reason is to be cheerful to everyone around you, so they will be happy too.

I have only listed three ways kids and adults alike can be good citizens; getting involved by debating in wars or government issues, following the law, and being kind to people. Now that you have read this essay, I hope you will apply these things to your life so you can become a good citizen too.

"What It Means To Be a Good Citizen"

Karissa

Being a good citizen is a good thing to do. To be a good citizen you can help people. You can stay involved with the city, and you can do the right stuff. Kids now can also be a good citizen. I am going to talk about those things in my report.

Staying involved is one thing you could do to be a better citizen. If you stay involved you can know what's going on in the world. For example, you could stay involved in the world by watching the news and reading the news paper. By staying involved you will also know about the people in your community. You could learn about whom you should be friends with. You will know what your neighbors are like and what your neighborhood is like as well. That way you could make friends with the right people. That's one thing you could do to be a better citizen.

Helping others is another way to be a good citizen. If you help others you will be doing the right thing. For example, if someone gets hurt you should help them. You would also be helping someone that needed help. So when you need help they will help you. When you help people they think of you as a good citizen. Helping people will make you a good citizen, and it also makes you feel better to help people. In my opinion those are some reasons why it is good to help others and some good examples on how to become a better citizen.

If you do the right thing you will be a good member of the community and a good citizen. By doing something to help clean up around the community it would be a way to do something right. Participating in fundraisers is also a good way to help around the community. Supporting local sports will also help make you be a good member of your community. Volunteering in schools is a good way to help your community too. When you make good choices people will remember you for it. People will know that you are a good citizen. Being a good citizen is important to the success of a good community.

In my opinion these are all good ways in which a person could be a good citizen and a member of the community. Helping others is important to make your community a better place. By staying involved and participating in community activities, fundraiser and volunteering one can show how they care about there community. I hope more people will get involved in our community. I plan to do my part in being a good citizen.

Austin U.

 Being a good citizen is learning and developing good life skills. The next idea of becoming a good citizen is being organized. The final idea I will explore in this paper is staying involved with your community. I believe becoming a better citizen is important because you can create a better relationship with others.

The first piece of being a good citizen is having good life skills, like being responsible.  Being responsible, means keeping track of your belongings at all times. For example, when you go on a sleepover don't forget your socks or toothbrush. Another part is doing your chores or jobs on time. If your job is taking the trash out on Tuesday and you forget, you're stuck with a whole bunch of trash. Speaking of time, one more part of being responsible is being in the right place at the right time, like not being late for school, appointments, and sport practices. If you are late to school too many times you will get after school detention, and you have to make up missed work. Being late for practice may cause you to run extra laps and you would be letting the coach and your team down. Being responsible is the first strategy to becoming a better citizen.

The next part of being a better citizen is being organized. It is important for students to keep their locker in tack, so they don't lose any important papers. If you lose assignments you lose points and get bad grades. If you get bad grades you might get held back. The solution to this is putting your worksheet into your binder behind the right tab. Along  with keeping your binder organized make sure your text books and dear book are where you can get to them easily. Getting to your text books is important because you only have five minutes in-between classes. So as you see being organized is important part of being a good citizen.

The final part of being a good citizen is being involved with your community. Volunteering to coach a sport team is good community service. This is important to the kids, so more kids can play, they are always looking for good coaches. Volunteering at church great idea for serving your community.  For example I help with Awana in game time along with George.  Another way you can volunteer is to organize a canned food drive in your community.  We need canned food drives so we can help families who are less fortunate than others. The last way you can stay involved, with your children and talk about what they should stay away from.  For example drugs, alcohol, and people who are bad influences. This will help to make them better citizens.

 Those are just a few thought of what I believe makes a good citizen. That is why we have kind and helpful Americans today. If we all try to be better citizens we will form a better tomorrow.

What Does it Mean to Be a Good Citizen?

David H.

Being a good citizen is important. I think that citizenship is unexciting but it is important. What this paper is about is voting. It is also about how it's important to be educated about the war and follow laws. That is what this paper is about.

To make a good citizen is voting. It is important to vote because if you don't vote you have no right to complain. Sometimes it is good to complain because you can make the United States better. Voting is choosing who you want to be president. Also, it is important to vote because when you vote you are participating in being a U.S. citizen. Being a good U.S. citizen means to follow laws. Also, being a good U.S. citizen means to say the Pledge of Allegiance very day and singing the national anthem before a baseball game. It is important to vote.

Another way to be a good U.S. citizen is being educated about the war. Being educated about the war means many different things. You need to know what is going on in the war. There are many ways you can find out about the war, like reading newspapers and watching the news. You'll need to know where the war is going on. Finding out where it's going on is just a matter of looking on a map. Knowing who's involved in the war is very important. You can also find this out on the news or in the newspaper.

Another thing that makes a good citizen is obeying the law. Don't vandalize another people's property. That means don't graffiti and destroy other people's stuff. Do not kill people. You need to follow the speed limit to be a good citizen. If you don't follow the speed limit you could hurt yourself and others. There are consequences for these things. You could go to prison or get a ticket.

It is good to be a good citizen. You have read all about being a good citizen. Voting is part of being a good citizen. It is important to be educated about the war and follow the laws. Now you know what it means to be a good citizen, so go be one.

What Does it Mean to Be a Good Citizen?

 Grant B.

Hello I am Grant B. I am going to tell you about things that I can do to be a good citizen. It could be something as simple as recycling a used soda can, or putting yard debre in a yard recyclables bin.

 Being a good citizen is fun in many ways. You can have fun while still being a good citizen. Picking up trash in the park can be fun if you do it with friends. Educating your peers about drugs and alcohol is a good contribution. Also you can help pass out and advertise merchandise to help raise money for a charity. Or help educate your community about false advertisement. You could also tell your community why gas prices are so high. My beliefs of why the gas prices are so high are that because of the war and our government needs money to support our troops. Additionally the oil companies are taking advantage of the situation.

You can be a good citizen while still being a good friend. Like when a friend needs help with homework. And when a teacher needs help with the classroom. And you could also be a good citizen by helping your neighborhood. Being a good citizen is to inform your neighborhood of hazards.

 If you want to be a good citizen you can educate your community about Iraq. The war in Iraq is often misunderstood. Some people can think that the war is pointless. I believe that if we pull out our troops that they will just fire up their weapons plants and bomb us in the near future.

These are some of the many things you can do to help improve your neighborhood. Don't you think it's time you took on some responsibility?

Citizenship Essay

Sean M.

 What does it mean to be a good citizen? Being a good citizen could mean a bunch of things, like helping others, being involved in the community, or learning about the government. These are all great ways to be involved in the community. There are other ways but this essay is going to talk about those three main things.

We need to be involved in the community. Some ways we can do that is by going to city council meetings. If the city is doing something or not doing something, don't just sit and watch it happen. Go and tell them what you think. Another way is to volunteer to do repairs on stuff or help plant grass. You could also arrange a clean up when you go around the town and pick up litter. These would help by making the land cleaner, making it look nicer and being able to do something about it.

We also need to learn about the government. We need to know how the government works. It's important because if we don't think something is right we can vote against it. Or if we don't know how it works and we think something is wrong, then we can learn how it works and understand if it is right. Also we need to vote. Voting is our patriotic duty and we need to honor it. It's important to vote because at least we have a say in it. Some countries have dictators that take a gun and hold it to somebody's head and say "I'm going to be president got it." Last tell others to vote. It's not only your duty it's theirs too.

Last it's important to help others. Like if someone gets hurt,give them a bandage or medical attention maybe even call 911. If the accident's bad enough you might save a life. Also if someone is being bullied stop the bully. It might start as teasing but could get a lot worse. You could really help someone. Last if someone is carrying something heavy and drops it help them pick it up. It will make you feel good and you'll get a good reputation.

 In conclusion that's what I think being a good citizen means. Helping others. Being involved in the community. And learning about the government all great was to be a good citizen.

Citizen Essay

Annie B.

There are many ways to be a good citizen and I feel that kids our age can be a part of it Being involved with the society is one way to be a good citizen. Joining a club or service could be another way. Or maybe you could just be civil and benignant.  These are all good ways to becoming a good citizen. As you continue to read you will find the many benefits of these actions and why you might want to be a part of it.

When you are involved with the community you are being a good citizen. How can you be involved with the community? Well, you could start by reading your daily newspaper for reports of anything near your community, so you can stay safe. For example…if there was a burglary nearby, you would know to be extra sure you locked all your doors and windows. Another way is to talk to your neighbors about things going on in their lives, so you could support them when they are going through tough times or congratulate them when they have achieved something. One more thing I can think of is set up meetings with your neighbors and talk about things that need fixing in your area. Such as, if there was a hole in your road you could all chip in some money to get it fixed. It would be a lot cheaper and you would improve your area, while you would be well known and respected.

Another way to be a good citizen is by joining a club or service. In your club you could pick up trash around town to make your town a cleaner and nicer place to be in. Or, you could collect items to help people in need, such as orphanages, homeless people, or maybe some hurricane or tornado relief. You could also set rules down in your area, to make your area safer. Joining a club is a great way to help out your community and others in need. Join a club and be a part of these acts.

Being civil and benignant is another good way of becoming a good citizen. You can do that by using good language because that is respectful. Another thing you can do is help people who are in need of help. If you see someone's bag fall on the ground and spill…help pick it up. They will see you as a good person and you will be respected for your polite and kind actions. One other way is to respect people's property. Don't walk into someone's flowerbed or lawn. As well as doing graffiti on their possessions. Something like that would be disrespectful. By not doing and doing these things you are being a good citizen.

Kids our age can do all of these things. They can be involved with the society. As well as join a club and help out around their community or even the world.  Being civil and benignant isn't so hard either. If you try to become apart of one of these acts, you will be so glad you did. So, become a good citizen and you'll never regret it!

What It Means To Be a Good Citizen

 Colten F.

 I think a good citizen has three main guidelines. First, a good citizen is polite. Second, a good citizen looks out for others. Third, a good citizen follows the law. I think a good citizen is polite, looks out for others and follows the law.

A good citizen is polite. They don't damage property, signs, or other people's houses. Those would not be good neighborly things to do. After having lunch they throw their trash in the garbage. People do this because parks covered in litter aren't good places for kids to play. Good citizens don't do stuff to annoy their neighbors. Neighbors don't do this, because that might make the other neighbor's life miserable and then they could be annoying back which in turn could make life miserable for both neighbors. Good citizens don't damage property, litter, or be bad neighbors.

A good citizen looks out for others. If someone got drunk at a party, a good citizen would let them stay the night or drive them home. They would do this because a drunk driver can be a danger on the road. After leaving home if a good citizen sees someone rob a store they report it. Then others could be on their guard. While coming from work if a good citizen sees people selling drugs he would report it. He would do this because drugs are deadly and addictive, and in order to buy more innocent people could be hurt. Good citizens help neighbors, report robberies, and report drug dealings.

A good citizen follows the law. If while walking his dog, a good citizen sees something he wants, he wouldn't steal it. People don't do this because it would cost the shop owner money to replace it. While driving, a good citizen follows the speed limit. They do this because if while speeding they go around a sharp corner they could roll their car or hurt someone. When mad, good citizens would not harm anyone. Because they might go to jail and the person could go to the hospital. Good citizens don't steal, speed, or harm others.

From my sixth grade point of view, good citizens do three things. Number one, they're polite. Number two, they look out for others. Number three, they follow the law. Good citizens are polite, look out for others, and follow the law.

Dakoda R.

There are so many ways you can become a good citizen. Being a good citizen is a good thing. If you are a good citizen sometimes you will get awarded. You should also follow the laws. If you are following the laws you are doing a good thing. Another thing you should do is always beware of the environments. The last thing you should do is be nice to others and they'll do the same.

First, always beware the environments. You need to learn how to keep the world clean. One way to keep the world clean is to pick up all the garbage. Another way to keep the world clean is to always recycle. If you donÕt recycle animals will die. there would be more pollution if you did not recycle. Pollution also kills animals. So that is one thing you can do to be a good citizen.

 Next, you should always be nice to others. If you were nice to others they would do the same. Do not use bad language. If you use bad language at some one they'll do it back. You should also help your community. You should help your community by cleaning up. If you cleaned up you would be doing something good. You would also be making the world a better place.

One other thing you need to do to be a good citizen is to always follow the laws. One thing you can do is not litter. Another thing you can do is respect others. If you don't they would not want to be your friend any more. That is what you can do to be a good citizen. 

You should be a good citizen and do these thing. If you didn't you would be a criminal. In conclusion these are all the things you can do to be a good citizen. These are most of the things you can do to help.

What is a good citizen? This is a question that is not easily answered but kids can still be good citizens. Getting involved in your in your community is one thing kids can do. A little but, helpful thing is volunteering. Being polite is also another thing that makes a good citizen. Being a good citizen is always a very good thing.

One thing that makes a good citizen is, getting involved in your community. One reason of doing that is so you know what you can do to help your community. Like if there is a problem in your community, you may be able to find a solution. You also may miss a great opportunity. Another thing is so you know what is going on in your community. Personally I like to know what is going on in my community. Something else is volunteering, like volunteering to pick up trash at the park so people will have a nice place to play. Another simple thing is reading the newspaper.

Something else that makes a good citizen is volunteering. The simple things of volunteering can make you a good citizen. Volunteering is really simple but still really helpful in many ways. Cleaning up trash may not seem like a lot of help but, it still makes you a good citizen. Painting and fixing up old broken down stuff makes your community a more beautiful place to live in. Helping elders doesn’t affect everyone but it is still something kids can do to be a good citizen. Another thing is to raise money for the homeless. One kid or one person doesn’t seem like a lot of help but one piece of food, clothing or even a letter means the whole world to one unfortunate person.

The last thing is being polite. It doesn't seem like a lot to be a good citizen or more importantly a good friend. Being nice or polite is an easy way for kids to be a good citizen. It will make your community a better place to live in. In a group effort you will most definitely see you will get stuff done faster and more efficiently. You will most definitely see you will get more respect. A good attitude can make you a good citizen. You will also make your community a happier and brighter place to live in.

Being a good citizen is a lot of work but still something kids should get involved in. Getting involved in your community is one thing. Another thing is volunteering. The last thing is being polite. All of these things and more are things kids can do to be a good citizen.

Austin L

There are three big parts to being a good citizen. One of these is being responsible. The second is not committing crimes. The third is knowing what's going on in the world around you and educating others about it as well. These are three major parts to being a good citizen.

Responsibility means taking the consequences for your own actions. Being a good citizen means getting involved in your community. That means volunteering in events like baseball or soccer, but they don't have to be sports. They can be events like parades, festivals or a litter patrol. Voting is another big thing. Voting is very important to your community because you help make decisions. It is also important because you know how to help your community and make a difference. Responsible citizens don't litter, riot or hut other people because of something that they did. A basic form of being responsible is listening to your parents and doing your fair share of work without complaining. Being conscience of other people around you make you a good citizen.

Another way to be a good citizen is to not commit crimes. Drugs are a crime you hear about often. Doing drugs puts innocent people at risk of being killed. It is a quick and easy way to end up in jail. Probably the biggest thing you can do in being responsible is not drinking and driving because you can kill someone. Instead, be responsible by taking a cab or having a designated driver that didn't drink. Murder is a very bad thing. It is not responsible and will put you in jail, or worse. You don't have to be a person's friend but you should not kill them over something. It is not good citizenship commit crimes because it puts innocent people at risk and it puts yourself at risk.

To be a good citizen you should learn and understand what is going on in the world around you. That means you should read the newspaper. The newspaper has a lot of information in it. All the current events are in the newspaper including problems in the government and other issues in the world. You can also get information about storms or other things that might concern you. The television news is the second best way to get information, but you don't always get the right information. It is a lot easier then reading the newspaper. If you talk to others, you can get more information that you have missed. Using this you can educate yourself and other people about the world around you.

I think that all people can be good citizens, but you have to try or it is not possible. Whether it is obeying the law, volunteering, or educating, it is all good citizenship. There are more things that you can do, but it is up to you, no one can choose it for you.

What Makes a Good Citizen?

By Darien

What makes good citizenship? Good citizenship is being involved. Being involved can be difficult. You need to keep up with the news. It is important because if we were going to war you'd want to know. Also it is important to be nice to people.

Sometimes being involved can cause problems. But if you work hard at it you can accomplish many things. It is important to be involved because you would know what's going on around you. Next you would know how to react. There are three main reasons why it is important to be involved. Just like there is a war and many people are reacting differently. Another way that people are reacting is that people are tuning into the radio stations and the tv news. All of these are ways to stay involved.

It is also important to keep up with your country. One way to do that is to read the paper and to watch the news. By doing this you will have an idea of what's going on. If we were to go to war you wouldn't know when or why. It is important to always vote for whom you support. Just simple things like that can keep you involved.

It is also important to be nice. The reason it is important is because you would want to be treated with respect. Another is people wouldn't be nice to you. Another reason is that people have a reputation. Or the people of the community might know something that person doesn't want anybody else to know. If you were not nice people would treat you the same. You wouldn't want to be treated badly. So put yourself in their shoes. All of these are good reasons to be nice.

Being a good citizen can mean many things. For one you could listen to the radio. Secondly, you could try to know what's going on. You should always be nice. It is very important to keep up with the country. To be a good citizen you also need to help the people who need it the most.

 What Does it Mean to Be a Good Citizen?

Tanzie

Have you ever wondered what it means to be a good citizen? As a sixth grader, here are some of my opinions on what makes up a good citizen. Some traits or qualities a good citizen should have are respecting people and their property. Being educated is another good trait, as is helping people less fortunate than you.

           Good citizens should be kind to others by helping out when they can and respecting people's privacy and property; also by being kind and generous. A good citizen should be willing to help out. You could volunteer at an animal shelter or nursing home. Baby sitting kids or even animals is a great way to help out your neighbors or relatives.  You could help out your school by tutoring, or do extra little jobs around your house to help out your mom or dad. There are tons of ways to help people out and these are just a few things you could do.

             Good citizens need to be educated about things going on in the world. Illnesses and diseases are good things to know about, for they affect many people in the world. It's also good to be aware of weather and areas where hurricanes, tornadoes, and many other natural disasters affecting people around the globe; you could find out how you can donate money or help them out. Cultures and religions are great things to know about, because not a lot of people take the time to learn about cultures and religions different than their own. From India to Saudi Arabia to America there are so many different cultures and religions. Pollution and wars are good things to know about because they are things that affect the world and people every day. History and people who changed this county such as Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King Jr., and Benjamin Franklin have helped this world out so much. African Americans wouldn't be treated equally as white people without Martin Luther King Jr. We wouldn't have electricity without Benjamin Franklin, and Albert Einstein was smart and came up with the theory of relativity. These people were the building blocks of America as it is today, so they are very important to know. Finally the world and the people who inhabit it are very important issues to know about.

           A good citizen should donate to needy people, also or people in disaster areas. You can help by having a garage sale or a bake sale to raise money. Fundraisers are great way to raise money. You could also get friends or other schools get involved. Maybe have a talent show or a play to raise money. Lemonade stands are great ways to raise money, especially on a hot day. Donating clothes and items are good ways to help. There are many ways to help out people and these are just a few ideas it is great to help people less fortunate than yourself so get INVOLVED!

           Well I hope some of my ideas as a 6th grader told you some traits or qualities a good citizen should have, like being educated about the world, donating to be less fortunate than you. And by being kind and generous to anyone you meet.

Being a good Citizen

Gunnar

I often wonder why people disrespect other people. Here are some good things that you and I could do to be a better citizen. For an example, we all should be respectful and helpful to older people. The men and women who fight for our country are the most honorable citizens. We should always show these men and women the highest respect. I believe that if all of us cared about each other and showed respect we wouldn't have as much hate and crime in the world.

I think that the men and women who fight in the war should get the highest respect. I think that honorable citizens should be respected. The honorable citizens that fight for our country should be treated with high respect. The men and women who serve for our country are honorable citizens. The people that fly the flag for America are good citizens. Showing honor and respect and giving equal treatment to all Americans and other people is being a good citizen.

A good citizen is showing respect, honor and giving equal treatment to everyone. Helping the elderly and young children are important in being a good citizen. I believe that if all of us loved each other and didn't fight we wouldn't have so much crime. Following the law and all rules and just helping someone else makes a difference. Being on a team and playing by the rules and just having fun. Win or lose, I try to enjoy each game I play I try to show good sportsmanship and try to set good examples. Listening and learning is important for our future so we can know how to help other generations.

Following the law and not fighting is being a good citizen. Being nice to different people than you is being a good citizen. Being happy and laughing and smiling when you show acts of kindness to everyone pass to other people and helps them to continue an act of kindness. Not getting mad and not arguing with people is being a good citizen. The things that you do should be done with common sense and honorable things so it will be not hurting someone else. What ever you choose to do, it should be something you are proud of, never ashamed of!

Being a good citizen is showing honor, leadership, respect and love. The world is full of people serving our country and these people die to defend our country. It's important for all of us to live each day with honor and respect and to treat everyone that we meet with kindness. Someone that doesn't treat people with respect is a bully. It's important to try everyday to treat people equally and you will be a good citizen.

A GOOD CITIZEN

JC

Good citizens should help. No, have to help with things in this country or our land of the free is going to turn into the land of the bad. If we don't help, then there won't be anything we can do, but be sitting ducks for another country to take over. There are a lot of things that we can do but these are only some that we the people can do.

Good citizens get involved. Get into support groups to help those with loved ones in the war. Help groups for citizens that have loved ones that have died in the war. Participate in parades to honor those who have served and maybe died serving are country and saving other peoples life. Be in fundraisers to earn money for the soldiers to pay for necessary items like toilet paper, blankets, and food for them. Citizens join information groups to find things out before others, and to get the whole truth and nothing but the truth. If Sedum Houisan is captured then you want to know right? If there's an attack then you want to know right? If there's a victory you want to know right? Here are some other things you can do.

A good citizen donates to the Armed Forces. They need money for helmets. They need money for flack jackets so the soldiers don't get that hurt from shrapnel. They need money to pay people to make the bullets. They need money to pay people to make the guns. They need money to pay people to shoot the guns and make peace in the war. To make this money you as a citizen needs to help make the money they need to fight the war and win. They need donations to pay for it all. Now these are the last things that you can get ideas to help with the war.

Good citizens should help injured soldiers. Donate blood to injured soldiers. Maybe donate a useless organ to a soldier that really needs it. They need medical help so you should help. Some soldiers can't afford medical help. Some don't have enough time for medical help. Some don't know that they need medical help. So donate your time to becoming a doctor to help the soldiers that are hurt from fighting.

Good citizens get involved with the war. They also donate to the Armed Forces and try to help. They help with medical things and also get educated. And that my friend is what a good citizen should do!

In My Eyes', What is a Good Citizen?

Brian

If I want to be a good citizen I must be a part of my community. I could participate in local fund raisers and other charities. I would also need to learn about our government. Another way I could be a good citizen is by participating in patriotic events. All of these things make me a good citizen.

If I want to be a good citizen it would be good to get active in my community. I could participate in local fund raisers. I have been in the Relay for Life fund raiser for 2 years. I could also participate in can food drives. I have participated in my school's fund raiser can food drive every year so far. I could donate blood once I am 18. My Mom and Dad have both donated blood. I do all these things to get active in my community.

Another way I could be a good citizen is by getting involved. One way I get involved is to learn about democracy. Learning about democracy will help me vote when I get older. I could also get involved by learning about the war. I need to know about wars so that I can vote yes or no so that I know what to vote for. I can also contribute to the troops so the people defending others rights can get letters and items. Many people like getting letters from their home country. This is another way I can be a good citizen.

It is also good if I participate in patriotic events. I could participate in saying the Pledge of Allegiance. I say the pledge almost every day. I could volunteer to sing our national anthem at school assemblies. This would be one of the best ways to get active in my community. Its a good thing to celebrate the 4th of July which is the national U.S. birthday. These are all ways I could participate in patriotic events. There are many more ways to participate so I just listed a few.

I am a good citizen because I have done most of those things. I donated items and my time. I also study our government. I have also participated in many other activities including patriotic events. I like to be a good citizen and it opens a lot of opportunities for me.

As a 6th grader today, you can be a great citizen. Do you know how? Well I am going to tell you. One way you can be a good citizen is by supporting the troops. Another way is by knowing what's going on in the world. Third, you could help others who are in need. One way in which you can support the troops is sending letters, and letting them know how much you appreciate them. Something you might mention in your letter is how grateful you are, that because of them, our country is still free. Even though war is sad, there are times it is necessary to keep our homeland safe. Sending packages to the troops helps too. It is always nice to have things when you are away from home. You might ask them how they came to be in the military. What gives them the courage to fight for what they feel is right and true. I hope you learned a little more about being a good citizen by following the suggestions that I have mentioned.

Another way to be a good citizen is being interested in other people and the way they feel about things. Like their religion. How their beliefs differ from yours. Being sure you show them respect, even if you don't believe the same things. Another way you can find out about the world is from the newspaper. Reading about the things that are going on around you, and helping out when the need is there. Finding out what is happening right under your nose, perhaps in your own neighborhood. The last example is watching the news. You can learn a lot from the news and what's happening around you. These are simple ways in which you can be a great example and great citizen.

Finally, have you ever seen someone begging on the street corner? On the news there have been many natural disasters happening around the world. Do you know what you might do to help these people out? Well I am going to tell you. One way is to give them money. If you don't have an income, perhaps selling lemonade, or having a garage sale, would be a good way to earn money. Another way to help others in need would be to have a food drive, getting others involved in a good cause. Finally you could send letters of support and understanding to those who have lost so much. I hope you have learned how to be a good citizen in these 3 easy steps. Supporting our troops, trying to understanding the world in which we live, and helping people in need are all excellent ways of being a great citizen. Any or all of these things can be done, even if only 11 years old. I hope this may be of help to becoming a great citizen.

Have you ever wondered what it means to be a good citizen? Do you feel like you won't be able to be a good citizen until you are older? Well, that's not true. People of all ages can be good citizens. Kids my age can volunteer in their community by picking up litter. They can be good citizens and support the troops by sending them letters, supplies, or food. When we get older and turn 18, we can vote. Voting is an important way to show that we are good citizens. It gives us the opportunity to choose the people and ideas that we think will be best for ourselves and our community.

Volunteering in the community is a good way for people of all ages to be good citizens. Picking up litter makes a community look better, and it can bring money into the community. When picking up litter, we can collect bottles and cans and take them to a recycling center for money. The money can be donated to the city to help build something or do something to make the town a better place to live. Another good thing people can do is to go to a church in their town and volunteer to work in a soup kitchen and help cook and deliver warm meals to the needy. Volunteering to be a crossing guard is another good thing. By being a crossing guard, you can help children get to school safely each day. These are just some of the ways you can volunteer in your town or community.

Next I'm going to tell how to support our Troops. One way to support them is to buy a magnet for your car that says "Support Our Troops" on it. Another way to support the Troops would be to have a fundraiser. You can use the money collected to buy supplies and make care packages. Writing a letter to the Troops is another way to show support. We can write about how thankful we are for them, and how grateful we are that they are risking their lives to make things better. If you know someone who is fighting, you can send them pictures of you. These are good ways to support our Troops.

The last thing I'm going to talk about is voting. Voting is a way to choose what's right for a community. If a school needs to be fixed up or needs to be bigger, voting in an election is how we choose whether or not that is a good idea. Voting allows you to decide which people you want to be the leaders of your town or city. Voting allows people to choose whether or not they want to raise taxes or make better roads. If there is no place in your town for kids to play, bringing a group of people together and voting to build a park is another way. They can vote to decide if they should have a fundraiser, or go door to door to collect donations to build the park. These are good ways to vote.

There are many ways to be a good citizen. Listing them all would take forever. One of the things I talked about was to volunteer in your community. You could volunteer at a soup kitchen to help feed the needy. Another way was to support our Troops by sending letters or money for care packages. The last thing was voting in elections or as part of a group. If there is no park for your kids to play at you can start a fundraiser to build a park. These are all ways to be a good citizen.

What Does it Means to Be a Good Citizen?

Skye

Do you know what it means to be a good citizen? It doesn't mean boring work. Here's some ways we can make it fun and entertaining. I know sometimes if I make a game out of doing something like picking up trash it makes it fun in the end.

Anybody can be a good citizen in my opinion. Older people, kids, and adults, we can all be good citizens. We don't all have to do the same things, different people can do different things. Kids like me could pick up trash. Older people could arrange things like community meetings. Adults could do the rest, like paint around the community, fix things that need to be repaired, weed gardens and mow lawns. If everybody worked together like that things would be great for the community. The town would look great, and people would be happy living there.

It doesn't have to be hard. It can be as simple as when your walking down the street and you pick up some trash. That's being a good citizen. Anybody old enough could do a paper route, or you could volunteer around the neighborhood. Things like painting birdhouses, gardening or raking leaves for the community, just however you can get involved. Maybe you or your friends could find something fun to do to help, or make it serious. It's your choice.

Even if you're new to the community, you can still get involved. All you have to is a few small things to make a big difference. Maybe you could create some way to make money for your community. Then you could use the money for things the community needs to buy. Even you can make a difference. It doesn't even have to be a big one. A small thing can be the start of a huge thing. For example, if you just pay for one pot of flowers, then somebody else buys a pot, and then somebody else and so on, then your community will have a huge garden filled with flowers because you made one small effort.

Now do you think you know what it means to be a good citizen? I think so. I've talked about how to make it fun to help out your community from the view of a sixth grader. I know there are ways to make it fun to be a good citizen.

What Does It Mean to be a Good Citizen?

Megan Deane

 It's important to be a good citizen. You can be kind to others, get involved in things, and do good in school.

One way to be a good person is to be nice to other people. Don't ever be mean to someone in front of or behind their back. Be kind and help people out. Always add encouragement. You can also be considerate to others. Pick up after yourself at home, and don't be lazy. Do your best to get along with siblings, and people you don't like.

Another way to be a good citizen, is to get involved in things. Good sportsmanship is like good citizenship. So participate in clubs and sports. They're a good way to meet new people. You could also do jobs like babysitting, lawn mowing, dog walking, car washing, or other things to get money. Do odd jobs, or chores, around the house. Also get an allowance. Getting involved in whatever you can is a fun way of being a good citizen.

Getting a good education is another important way of becoming a good citizen. If you do well in school, then you have more opportunities for the future. It's important to try your hardest to get good grades. Always turn your work in on time, so your on top of things. Then, it becomes easier to keep track of what you're doing. Also never give your teachers a hard time. Do what they tell you to do. If you try your hardest, then you can succeed.

Good citizens make the world a better place. You can be kind to others, get involved in things, and get a good education. But there are many other ways to be a good citizen.

What Does It Mean To Be a Good Citizen?

Whitney

You as a sixth grader can be a great citizen. Some ways you can be a good citizen are, be loyal to your country. Be good to your environment and finally get involved with the world.

One way you can be loyal to your country is to pledge to the flag with pride, knowing that we are free. Also you can prepare to grow-up to be in the Army, to keep our country even more free. You could plan to run for government too! You may also send fun letters, little things and food to troops that are away from there family serving for are freedom. Last you can help families with people serving for our freedom.

To help with the environment you could pick up litter. Make sure that you never litter. You can be good at recycling, like newspaper, plastic, metal etc. Instead of riding in a car, you could take your bike when possible. For every tree that you cut down, plant a new one. Don't destroy the forest by being careless with fire. Make sure you obey all the laws of the land.

People should be involved with their community and the world. You should watch the news. The news gives you details on the world's events. The newspaper is filled with even more details, and covers lots of different topics. There are many things in which you can get involved in just by reading the paper and being informed about the world around you.

These or all great things you can do to be a good citizen around your neighborhood, your community or even at home. I hope you enjoyed reading this paper on being a good citizen.

What it means to be a good citizen!

Kristen

What is an awesome citizen you ask? In these three paragraphs you will read some really good ideas. To help out you can send packages to the soldiers in the war. You can also volunteer in your community. Also you can give money to the poor. In the following paragraphs I'll tell you even more ideas. What are you waiting for read these paragraphs!

If you don't think we need to send packages, then you're wrong. Here are some reasons why we need to. One reason is in the war the soldiers don't have everything we have in our life. They would probably like it if you sent them something. In the package you could put a picture of their family. I bet they could use soap too. You can do your part if you sent them something. I hope you now know why they need something. If you don't have anything to send, write them a letter.

Another idea is to volunteer in your community. I'm going to give you some ideas. First, you could help clean your neighborhood park if you have one. You could raise money to help send the soldiers in the war gifts. You could read to younger kids who don't know how to read yet. There are a whole bunch of other things you could do too. I hope you want to go out and help out in your community.

If you still don't want to use any of those ideas I just gave you, here's another idea. You can give money to the poor. Here are some reasons why. The poor don't have stuff like you and me. Sometimes when you see them they look very cold. They can be really hungry too. Some of them even live on the streets.

Now I hope you know what a good citizen is. Just to make sure, I'll summarize what I just said. I just told you to send packages to the soldiers fighting in the war. I also suggested that you could volunteer in your community. Last but not least you can give money to the poor. Now that you know how to be a good citizen, go and help out right now (unless you're in school)!

What It Means To Be A Good Citizen

Neal

How would you like to learn to be the best citizen ever? Well first you could start a fundraiser. Second, you could start a family support group. Finally, you could help people in your class to make sure they get a good education. Now here's more detail about these topics.

To help with the war effort you can raise money like a fundraiser. One type of fundraiser you could do is having a lemonade stand. Another fundraiser would be to ask a company for a donation for the war effort. Once you've done a fundraiser you can send it to the government and make sure to tell them it's for the war effort so they don't think somebody sent their taxes. I would do this if I was you, and it would so much if you participated. The war needs as much help as they can get. My goal is get $200 dollars to give to the war. Millions of other people are helping why can't you.

Another way of being a good citizen is you can make or join a family support group. A family support group helps families who are depressed or are really mad. Once you've joined or started a family support group you can ease people who are very mad and try and make it so they don't take it out on other people. For people who are depressed try and make them look at the brighter part things, happy things instead of sad things. If you have them look at the brighter part of things they won't be so depressed all the time.

The final way of becoming a good citizen is by helping any and everyone to make sure they get a good education. To help make sure the get a good education is by helping them with their homework so they get a good grade on it. If they struggle with a question don't ell them the answer or they won't learn anything, so help them with the question but remember don't tell them. Another way is by becoming a tutor to help more than one or two kids who struggle, you can help many. If they need to study give them this tip, make study cards to help them remember what the answers are. If you have an older sibling ask them for help and if you don't ask your parents to help you. I'd try and help people who want help. I strongly advise that you do this.

These three ways are the best in the world try them you'll see. You'll see that our ideas are #1 instead of #2. These are world-class hints to becoming rich and kind. It's all-free. I would defiantly take this opportunity if I were you.

As a sixth grade being a good citizen is an important part of my life. Sure your probly thinking, why is it important to you? Well being a good citizen isn't just about keeping your community clean. For example helping others makes you a good citizen. Also learning about diseases. Last but not least supporting the troops. There are many more but I am not going to list them. I t would take up to much space.

Who is a good citizen? A good citizen is someone who helps others. I mean if some guy is sitting on the street asking for money you don't half to tell him he can live with you. I f you can give him a few bucks. That is one way you can be a good citizen. A good citizen is someone who picks up after themselves and others. I f you are in the park eating lunch throw your trash away. Also if some other person was eating there lunch and they didn't throw there garbage away throw it away. That is another way to be a good citizen. A good citizen is someone who respects their elders and is kind. If you are taking a jog and you run I into someone say sorry or excuse me. Also if you are talking to your parents and they tell you to do something. Do it, don't make them half to tell you again. That is how you can be a good citizen.

Another way to be a good citizen is to learn about diseases. Well until just recently I didn't know anything about diseases. Then I wanted to know. So I learned. I learned about what they did to you. How you get them. What you can do to prevent them. I learned lots of things. So if you want know these things than learn. Be a good citizen.

Last but not least you can support the troops. The troops are out half way across the world. A way from there families. S when you see them on TV doesn't just say that they are trying to be heroes. They are heroes. So when they come home appreciate them be proud of them. In a way they are protecting you so support them and you can be a good citizen.

I have just told you ways you can be a good citizen. So use them. For everyone.

ps. There are many more but i Iam not going to list them. I It would take up tpo much space.

How to be a good citizen

Chad

Here are some good ways for me to be a good citizen. The first way for me to be a good citizen is to support the troops. The next way for me to be a good citizen is to follow the law or rules. The last way for me to be a good citizen is to donate to the poor. And that is what I'm going to be telling you in this essay.

The last way for me to follow the law is to not drink. And those are some ways for me to follow the rules or law. 

A way for me to be a good citizen is to support the troops. The first way for me to support the troops is to send them stuff like letters, chocolates, and cards.

The last way for me to be a good citizen is I could donate to the poor. The first thing I could donate to the poor is food, for example, canned foods. The next thing I could donate to the poor is water, juice, or any other type of drinkable products. The last thing I could donate to the poor is clothes like shirts, pants, shoes, or socks.

Children can help the war by being a good citizen. Kids can run fundraisers and donations for things needed for the war. There are ways to collect money too! They can send the men and women, which fight for our country, food, drinks, candy, coffee, letters or thank you notes. Everyone can help! Kids can also help by reading the newspaper and listening to the radio or television. When reading the newspaper, you can read what's going on in the world and war. You can also make good choices about how your life should go. There are also other ways to be a good citizen other than making good choices.
