Michigan Government & Democracy
This Blended Unit Plan may be used by third grade teachers to teach 6 weeks of study for Michigan Civics, Government, and Democracy. It provides a big picture approach to planning out daily/weekly lessons.
Third grade students explore the social studies disciplines of history, geography, civics and government, and economics through the context of Michigan studies. Building on prior social studies knowledge and applying new concepts of each social studies discipline to the increasingly complex social environment of their state, the third grade content expectations prepare students for more sophisticated studies of their country and world in later grades (via Michigan Department of Education Grade Level Content Expectations)
