Governments of the World: World History US History Geography

"Interesting and thought provoking activity"

Here is what is included:

1. Government of the World Worksheet
2. Governments of the world answer key (definitions only)
3. Island activity
4. Paragraph extension
5. Paragraph sheet

Day 1. Governments of the World worksheet: This is a great way to go over the different types of governments. I have included 14 different types of governments to go over with your students. They will use their books or the internet to look up the definition of each type of government and the countries that represent each form of government.

Day 2. Island Activity Students will have to select a government and create their own island. They will have to think through the different possible styles of running a community. I like to have the students share what they have selected ad why out loud.

Day 3. Paragraph extension This is an extension that can be done in class or for HW. I think for the first paragraph should be done in class. I will included the paragraph sheet as well.

This is a great way to share the different types of governments from around the world in an easy to read way.


DAY 1:

STEP 1: I have the students do the front side of the worksheet giving examples of each different type of government in class.

This is a ONE page word document that will cover the following governments: Republic, Direct democracy, Representative democracy, Socialist, Dictatorship, Totalitarian, Monarchy, Absolute Monarchy, Limited Monarchy, Constitutional Monarchy, Communist, Oligarchy, Theocracy, Constitutional Democracy, and Democracy.

I am also including a partial key with this and a link to the rest of the information. It is up to you whether you want the students to give more modern examples or examples from the history book.


STEP 2: Go over the answers for each of the questions, using the included key.

STEP 3: Show the youtube video that goes with the governments.


DAY 2:

STEP 4: Students will get into groups of 3-5 and create their own island. They will complete this in class and then write the paragraph for HW.


DAY 3:

STEP 5. Share what the students have tried to do on their island with how it will work out in reality. This is a great way to set up the year with the many different types of governments that will be encountered as we teach World History, or Cultural Geography.
