This Forms of Government Notebook is a complete resource to use for teaching a unit/chapter on the many forms of government. In this resource, students will complete a variety of activities and tasks that challenge and assess learning. This resource was designed to be taught to learners of many different intelligences and learning styles. Included in this Notebook is writing, artistic, research, and creative activities. The sections of the Notebook include:

  • Notes/Vocabulary - In this section students will complete notes that include vocabulary terms of the different forms of governments. Students must first define what government is (visually), and then research how the different types of government function and operate.

  • What If There Is No Government? - This section asks students “What happens if there is no government?” Students will list reasons why government is important and then find an example of a country/nation that has experienced anarchy/no government.

  • Examples - In this section, students are tasked with finding actual examples of countries/nations that have the forms of government discussed throughout the packet. Students must also create and draw a symbol for each form of government.

  • Definitions - This section includes a vocabulary section of terms related to the different forms of government for students to research and then define.

  • Create Your Own Government - This final section of the notebook comprises multiple pages and is a project designed for students to create their own government. In this project and the pages in the notebook, students must define territorial units, create an economy, legislature, list the powers of the head of state, design a judicial system, and find allies among classmates. Finally, students must create a piece of propaganda for their country.

This is a comprehensive resource that can be used to teach students in many grades/abilities the different forms of government.
