Product Description
A simple yet comprehensive overview and inquiry activity around the January 2018 government shutdown to help your students stay on top of current events!

This can be used in any Social Studies classroom, and includes key vocabulary to help non-civics students better access the content. Students will learn what a government shutdown is and the timeline leading up to the January 2018 shutdown. Then, students will collect and cite evidence to determine who they believe is most responsible for the shutdown. Finally, students are asked to pose as political consultants and political scientists and provide advice on how to improve government efficiency.

You can use the slides and move through the activity as a class, or print the below article and have your students complete the activity independently.
