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:
- Write a creative writing story about your community - it could be on a different planet or island. It should be at least one page in length. You must illustrate your story.
- Create one of the following, but you must include a written description of the community and how it functions:
- Create a board game
- Make a poster of a community
- Make a diorama of your city
- Make a model
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.
