Holiday Break and the 2020 Census

Holiday Break and the 2020 Census

Take the opportunity to send some 2020 Statistics in Schools materials home with students to use and share with their families during the holiday break. These fun, interactive resources are perfect for showing how important it is to be counted in the 2020 Census. You can print and send activities home with your students, or email links directly to parents and caregivers in an end-of-year update.

Activities and resources to consider include:

  • Fun, short videos for various age levels that children and adults can watch together.
  • An activity-filled storybook for young children—available in English or Spanish—that explains the 2020 Census and the importance of counting everyone.
  • Follow an in-class lesson by assigning students the home extension listed at the bottom of each student worksheet. City Planning with Census Data or How the Census Impacts My Community are two great activities to use.

You can also distribute our take-home flyer for adults in students’ homes that explains how and why they should count all children who live with them. A take-home flyer specifically for households with pre-K students—available in English or Spanish—emphasizes the importance of counting children under age 5 when responding to the census.
