The Sovereign State
In this lesson, students learn four features of a sovereign state. Graphic organizers and mini-quizzes help reinforce the information. Using what they learned, students then create a fictional country and decide on a variety of features their new state will have.
Students will be able to...
- Identify and describe the four features of a state.
- Differentiate between a sovereign state and the “states” in the United States by deciding whether the four features of a state apply to each.
- List the four roles of government.
- Apply the features and roles of a state by creating a profile of a new, fictional sovereign state and deciding on its priorities.
