UOI

Next week we will be finishing up our first unit of inquiry with students completing a summative assessment task. Students will work in small groups to create their own community. Students will need to decide on a form of government as well as systems that would be important to their community and citizens. The groups will work together to design a presentation for the class and need to be able to thoroughly explain why they have selected the systems for their communities.
