Sebastian Williams Blogpost October 7,2014

  1. Do Know
  2. Word Nerd
  3. Simulation Nation
  4. Direct vs. Representative Democracy
  5. Debrief
The first thing we did was the Do Know.

We had to read a quote from Abraham Lincoln. "The purpose of government, is to do for a community of people, whatever they need to have done, but cannot do for themselves- in their separate, and individual capacities(what people are able to do) - Abraham Lincoln, 1854.
After, you have to answer these questions:
  1. In your own words, summarize what Abraham Lincoln is saying about government?
  2. What do you believe the purpose of government? Do you agree or disagree with what Abraham Lincoln. Says above? Why?
After the do know, we did the WORD NERD!!!! We looked at our new quizlet set: Government Systems. Quizlet
After the word nerd, we did the Simulation Nation. We have to build a tower to make our people believe we can run our country well. But there is a twist. We have to make it out of straws and tape. It also needs to be able to hold a marshmallow.

After a lot of hard work the WINNERS were Atlantis. Felipe D., Lara, Leilani and Kayla were in this group.
Next, we did our debrief which also counted as our exit ticket.
