Three Levels of Government

Learn about the three levels of government with our Amazing Adventures interactive stories, where students choose from four different characters, each of whom has to find solutions to their particular challenge. Students work together to figure out what decisions the characters should make.

Aimed at curriculum level 5-8 in Civics & Citizenship, this resource is a great way to get students thinking and learning about the three levels of government.
