Government can be a year long simulation. This kit arms you with the structures you need to set up a government in your own class. Start by having student write their own classroom constitution. Then have them vote on their leaders. Each student will act in some capacity within the government, either as Governor, Supreme Court Justice, Senator or member of the House of Representatives.
*Introduce the structure by using the Circle Map to brainstorm and the Tree map to differentiate between rights, responsibilities and privileges.
*Applications for the Supreme Court Justices and Governor, oaths to swear in the new officers
*Notes on the three branches of government
And a form for students to propose new bills.
