Product Description
This product is a 64 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the vocabulary list for the Unit on State & Local Government. The presentation covers the 59 common vocabulary words introduced in the study of State & Local Government for the students to master.

The United States has existed just over 230 years. This is a relative brief time as compared to other countries or empires. Its government is unique in both its development and in the way it functions as the world’s greatest representative democracy.

As the United States developed into a viable country, it took many of its ideas of government from the best thinkers of its day. Those thinkers created ideas of “Unalienable Rights” and wrote them directly into the laws of the land. These laws then, created a whole new vocabulary to describe these rights.

This presentation contains 59 vocabulary words for the student to master. The assignment is to review each of the vocabulary words, to understand what they mean and how they became part of our vocabulary today.
