This lesson is designed as an introduction to the purpose of government for a high school American Government or Civics class. Designed as a group activity, students work together to create their own government that they will then present to the class. This activity engages students to work cooperatively to evaluate our current system of government and determine the necessary parts and processes of a government in order to provide safety and stability for its citizens.
It is a great lesson to be used in the first week of school.
This is editable to fit the needs of your students.
