Fourth-grade teachers and students at Samsel Upper Elementary School in Parlin, N.J., turned a lesson about how government works into a real-life campaign to make saltwater taffy the state candy. As part of the lesson about civic engagement and how bills become laws, educators invited Assemblyman John S. Wisniewski to present to the class. Students asked him to sponsor the bill, and now it is being reviewed by lawmakers.
