No rules would be awesome! Why do we need a government? Students learn firsthand why governments are necessary as they assume the roles of plane crash survivors trapped on a deserted island. As the class struggles to organize their new community, students will clearly understand the different styles of rule and the difficulty in forming an effective and popular government. Students enjoy this engaging and memorable experience as a great introduction to a unit on government. Everything is included to easily walk you through the activity and lesson.
Lesson Includes: Island Activity PowerPoint, Island Government Notes, Island Government Questions, Teacher Quick Reference Guide, Island Summary Handout and Answer Key
