Activity Overview


As part of understanding the different types of government, it's great for students to be able to reference actual countries that are or had that each type at some point during their existence. This exercise will help students better understand the formation and history of that country, as well as their past and current relationships with each other.

In this activity, students will create a Frayer Model or a spider map that depicts real-life examples of different types of government. The governments that are chosen can be either current or historic. In the description box below each representation, students should include background information on the government, along with any significant events, laws, or individuals that emerged from the government.

Extended Activity:

As an extension to this activity (or perhaps an alternative), students can choose one country and investigate the different types of government that existed there over time. Students should be able to analyze the events that caused the changes and the impact each type had on the people and the country's international relationships.
