We just began our unit on North Carolina Government. We are learning about counties and local government, branches of government, how a bill becomes a law, NC Constitution, Bill of Rights, US and NC Preamble and the NC Declaration of Rights. We will conclude our unit the week before spring break with an in class PBL (project based learning). I think the students will enjoy this project, as there will be plenty of room for creativity and choice in what they do. The students will have an open book test on Friday, 3/23. They will get to use their packet which they will have been working through for the entire unit!
