This project is intended to help students gain an understanding of different types of governments. You have the ability to make that as broad or as narrow as you would like; some years I have given them free reign in choosing a government and some years I have narrowed it down to 3-4 choices. It also gives them a lot of autonomy in their learning and helps them develop planning and time management skills. I am including all of the pieces of the project that I have used; feel free to use them all or to pick what works best for you and your students! I hope you enjoy this project as much as I have!
There are 5 days to work on the project and the product, 1 day of presentations, and 1 day of discussion included in the project.
