Create a city or community that has the three branches of government that we have been studying (executive, judicial and legislative). The format can be as creative as you would like as long as there is representation from each branch. Here are some ideas:
Be creative, make it colorful and be sure that your community includes the things that we have discussed in class (laws, police/fire, hospitals, libraries, courts, jails, etc. Also include a mayor and show how he/she enforces the laws that your community has created. Use your notes or watch the local government powerpoint again here. Be creative, but you must include the facts needed.
Be prepared to share your assignment in class on Monday.
Study spelling words for tomorrow's test!
Go to www.scholastic.com and write a story in your journal. Please title your story and write the three categories you are writing about. Due tomorrow.
Practice the spelling words by going to spelling city and entering the words in the spelling test box. The site will give you a spelling test, which will be good practice for Thursday's test.
