What is Gov?

This school year I’m teaching one block at 9th grade Civics.  To introduce our unit on “What is Government?”, I quickly made this video the other night on a whim.  My intentions for this video were simple:

  1. Ask students what they thought government is, what it does, and what types of images in conjures up before they watch the video.
  2. Give them a quick glance at what are different elements of government.
  3. Make the video as cheesy and ridiculous as possible.

I think I achieved my three goals.  At least the third one.
