2. Divide students into four groups, and assign each group one service government provides (police, schools, roads, libraries). Explain to students that they will be citizens identifying these needs and will be deciding which governmental services we need. Using all available classroom materials, each group should locate or develop the following information (written on board for easier student reference)
3. HOMEWORK/ WRAP UP: After completing their research, each group should prepare a presentation for their class based on their findings. Presentations can be in the forms of skits, oral reports, town counsel simulations, or any other format that relays all of the required research information.
