As a child, I was terrible at History and Social Studies. My main goal of becoming a teacher was to make it understandable and relatable.We were venturing into the Three levels of Government and I could see their little eyes getting wider and wider. For their little worlds, this type of study can be so far removed from their lives it makes it hard for them to connect to. We began with this simple foldable. We made the foldable in this shape to show the "smallest" to the "biggest" government.
We filled in three facts from a powerpoint I found. They wrote under each flap:
Who that government deals with
What that government does
Who the Leader is
We watched this powerpoint to get our information. Click HERE to take you there. Side note: Some of the pictures need to be updated.
