Designed for students visiting the Lee County (Florida) Justice Center, this document contains activities to help students learn about their community by experiencing it for themselves. Prior to visiting the Justice Center, students are divided into four groups, each of which is assigned the task of gathering information on different aspects of the Justice Center. Data sheets for each of the groups (Physical Environment, Procedures and Processes, Sociology, and Technology/Careers) are included. A self-inventory on jails and prisons also is included. This publication provides teachers with ideas for developing study units that can be used in exploring their own communities. (DB)
