This week, we have been focusing on the three levels of the Canadian government. Canada's three main levels of government are:
- The federal level
- The provincial level
- The municipal level
Across the country, there are also band councils, which govern First Nations communities. These elected councils make decisions that affect their local communities.
Each level of government has a different structure and responsibilities.
To help students understand the government structure, I created word cards which students organized to represent the hierarchical structure. I created cards for each level of government. A completed chart was also created for use as an anchor chart, an answer key for teacher use or student checking, or for student reference.
The cards can also be used to help students acquire vocabulary related to government structure.
The Canadian Government cards are available in my TPT store.
To compliment the Canadian Government Word Cards, I created a presentation. The 84 page/slides resource details the Canadian government. It describes:
- The structure of each level of government - federal, provincial/territorial, and municipal
- The responsibilities of each of the three levels of government
- How a bill becomes a law Canadian symbols
