This is a bundle of 3 on United States Citizenship and the rights, obligations and responsibilities of United States citizens. It includes a 36 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on "What Does it Mean to be a Good Citizen”. The power point presentation covers an entire unit on citizenship. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The presentation has much more detail than what one typically finds. The civics benchmarks addressed include the following:
SS.7.C.2.1 Define the term “citizen,” and identify legal means of becoming a United States citizen.
SS.7.C.2.2 Evaluate the obligations citizens have to obey laws, pay taxes, defend the nation, and serve on juries.
SS.7.C.2.3 Experience the responsibilities of citizens at the local, state, or federal levels.
Also, included in the bundle is a Student Study Guide with a Guided Notes Activity Worksheet and a Teacher Answer Key. The Student Study Guide with the Guided Notes Activity Worksheet references the Florida Students Educational Resources Tutorial: Show Your Citizenship!
This activity complies with Florida Civics Benchmark: SS.7.C.2.2
SS.7.C.2.2 Evaluate the obligations citizens have to obey laws pay taxes defend the nation and serve on juries.
If you do not have a computer for each student, you can present the tutorial class activity completing each activity as you progress through the tutorial. If you have a smartboard, students can complete the activity at their seat, individually or with partners, and then come to the smartboard to present the answer. If you have computers or a laptop for each student, students can complete the tutorial and add answers as they progress through the tutorial at their own pace. Either way, students can then use the worksheet as a study guide for a quiz or the End of Course Exam.
