There have been many government change overs during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is an opportune time to study the types of government and what your own government stands for too. I hope this study will be an engaging way to cover the topic and start a conversation with your students.
If you are not subscribed to SCRIBD, we highly recommend it. Many of the books in our units are included in the subscription and it is a great homeschool tool. We were surprised to find out that it includes a free subscription to Curiosity Stream, along with other great apps. That's a homeschool bonus! All the books in this unit are available on SCRIBD.

This unit study covers Language Arts, History, & Civics. You will be reading your country's constitution or comparable documents, if possible. There are many gaming options to help students interact with the various types of government, along with writing and analytic activities. Plus, the unit includes access to a free digital copy of the Animal Empire role playing game, thanks to Half-Monster Games. It is geared toward grades 7-12, but can be adjusted for lower grades. You can find the unit on our unit studies page.
This unit study contains a list of resources and activities for you to use in your studies. Choose those that will best suit your students, time, and learning environment. My hope is that you will enjoy the process of learning and not feel constricted by the timeline or activities. Make changes as they suit your needs and enjoy your time learning together!
