Welcome to Brain Brigade Micro Society | Step-by-step instructions for creating a mock community in your fourth through eighth grade classroom. This is a system designed to help your students get a bit of experience in how our society and government works. As a member of this mock community, your students will receive a paycheck twice per month. They will have an opportunity to manage your money, participate in public meetings, give speeches, pay bills, apply for a job, run for political office, start a business, buy property and hold a job with all of its responsibility.
Since our society is always changing, teachers may have to set new “laws” during the course of our experience to help the society function.
We have included the following in this download:
-Listing of officers, job positions and a recommended number of people to fill those position and recommended pay for each position
-Guidelines for elections, rent, auctions, and more
-Description of officer roles and responsibilities
-Detailed meeting example to help your students understand basic Parliamentary Procedure and Robert's Rules of Order
-Form for Secretary for meeting minutes and description of how to take meeting minutes
-Treasurer's report for use during monthly meetings
-Job postings form for teacher to post available positions that students can "apply" for
-Job application form (example and complete ready-to-use form)
-Blank checks for Treasurer and bankers
-Opening a business guidelines
