Choosing Values is a ready to use activity to engage students in analyzing the importance of individual values to a community and its government. Students use place 10 different values in order of importance from most important to least important for a government to hold. Students write about their choices. This is a great bell-ringer or discussion starter for thinking about modern government, talking about elections, and more. Ideal for a civics government, social studies or social justice classroom.
