Canada has three main levels of government: federal, provincial, and municipal. The federal level is responsible for anything that impacts the country as a whole, such as taxes, the military, immigration, and the trading of goods. There are 10 provinces and 3 territories in Canada, and each of them has their own provincial government, which is responsible for things such as education, highways, healthcare, and agriculture. The last level of government is the municipal level, which is specific to cities and towns. This level of government is responsible for things such as public parks and libraries, public transportation, garbage removal, and local police and fire services.
For this activity, students will create a 3 cell spider map that illustrates and describes the roles that each level of government plays.
