- examine what it means to be a good citizen in the classroom, school, home, and community,
- identify and describe the rules and responsibilities students have at home, in the classroom, and at school.
Guiding ideasWhat is a Citizen? How does citizenship affect us in the classroom? Why is citizenship, and government necessary? Students will then participate in a series of activities, games, lessons, and/or instructions which introduce social concepts such as citizenship, government, democracy, and how we can apply those concepts not only to our classrooms but to our homes and the world around us. At the end of this project, students will be able to work together to construct a functional constitution for learning in our classroom. Students will be able to explain what it means to be a citizen within a society, why government is important, and what kind of government the United States of America has.
