Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To become familiar with many of the types of government that have developed through the years in various parts of the world.

TIME:
1 class period

Begin this lesson by reading the introductory paragraphs with the class about how there are many different forms of government, most of which fall into three categories: (1) autocracy – rule by one person (2) oligarchy – rule by a few people, and (3) democracy – rule by many people

Students next read through a series of descriptions of different forms of government, and must decide which words in parentheses best complete the sentences. This information is arranged into the following sections:

AUTOCRACY
• monarchy
• dictatorship
• totalitarianism

OLIGARCHY
• aristocracy
• theocracy
• junta
• Communism

DEMOCRACY
• direct democracy
• representative democracy

ACTIVITY OPTIONS:
This lesson can be turned into a fun contest between individual class members or pairs (some students may prefer to work alone, others with a partner) to see who can come up with the most correct answers by the end of the period. You can also turn this into a game by dividing the class into two teams that will take turns trying to identify the correct answers as you read through the descriptions with them.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
