Activity 10: Greek and Roman Government (GLEs: 11, 17, 36, 38)

Review with students what they have learned about how Greece and Rome were governed.  In pairs, students should devise a list of ways that the U.S. government is like that of Greece and Rome and ways it is not.

This is a great time in the curriculum to invite a government official (elected or appointed) into the classroom to discuss how government works today. 

  • How are laws made? 

  • How do we pay for government? 

  • Why is it important to vote once you’re 18? 

  • What ideas do students have for improving the country, and to which politicians or government officials should they voice these ideas?
