Activity Overview


In this activity, students will apply concepts about government and create their own country. Students will have to select a form of government and explain the reasoning behind their decision - why do they think that this is the perfect type of government for their country? You can tailor this assignment to meet the needs of your class, but are encouraged to offer numerous choices to students. This storyboard can serve as the summative assignment for the unit and can be presented for the rest of the class, either individually, or as part of a class-wide country fair where each country is on display simultaneously.
