U.S. Census Bureau and Broward County officials will launch the 2010 Census in Schools program at Broward County's Nova Blanche Forman Elementary School.
The program, hosted by Principal Chuck McCanna, faculty and staff, will be presented to the students and highlighted by visits from Sesame Street characters Count von Count (The Count) and Rosita.
Census in Schools gives schools a wide range of free, optional, standards-based lesson plans on subjects related to the census, ranging from math to social studies. The program is designed for students in kindergarten through 12th grade and will reach all 118,000 schools and 56 million students nationwide.
